The bulk of Tuesday's Sheridan County Commission meeting revolved around a request for a conditional use permit from Dennis and Shirley Cathey to operate a portable sawmill on their property at 498 Wildcat Road. The County Planning and Zoning Commission denied the request at their June 7th meeting. The County Commissioners postponed a decision on the request until their next regular meeting. Commission Chair Mike Nickel explains their decision.
The changes that the applicant plans to make to the original application consist of operating the sawmill in an enclosed soundproof building, building a fence where the log pile would be stored, and to not operate the sawmill on Saturday. The County Commissioners will address the request once again at their July, 17th meeting.
