The Sheridan County Commission approved two memorandum of understanding agreements Tuesday morning, with the state, one for a Guardian ad Litem program and the other for maternal and child health services.
The commission’s administrative director Renee Obermueller said the Guardian ad Litem program, referred to as G-A-L, provides legal representation in child protection cases. She gave details about the contract, during the meeting, then Commissioners Tom Ringley and Bob Rolston added comment.
She said the maternal and child health services agreement is with the state department of health.
The commission also entered into an agreement with Rocky Mountain Ambulance Service. As part of the contract, Commission Chairman Terry Cram said no one can be refused treatment or transport. Obermueller, once again, provided details about the contract and noted that the service is paid for, in part, by the capital facilities tax.
We expect to have more details on the contracts after interviewing county commissioners on today’s Public Pulse show. That starts at 9:10 on News Talk 9-30, K-R-O-E. We also hope to hear what they think about the master plan for the county-owned airport in Sheridan, which was detailed during the meeting.
