City of Sheridan Public Works Director Nic Bateson presented the Council with the numbers for the City's Public Works Department during a budget work session Tuesday. The Public Works budget for fiscal year 2010-2011 is $4.6 million, which is down 18% from last year. The reduced budget can be attributed for the most part to cuts in full time employees throughout the entire Public Works Department. Public Works Director Nic Bateson.
Personnel and administrative cuts were made in each of the departments that fall under Public Works except in snow removal, which will have a slightly higher budget than last fiscal year.
The various departments that fall under the Public Works umbrella include, parks and recreation, engineering, planning, building, and streets.
