Over the next couple of weeks, Sheridan County will be hosting a number of public meetings regarding the Capital Facilities Tax. Sheridan Media's Ron Richter has the story.
There are three scheduled meetings this week where the public will have an opportunity to learn more about the cap tax and have a chance to ask any questions they may have in regard to the tax.
The first meeting will be this evening at 6 o'clock at the Town Hall in Ranchester. There will be a meeting Wednesday night at the Dayton Town Hall at 7:30. Thursday at 5:30, the Sheridan County Courthouse public meeting room 210 will be the site for the final meeting of the week.
Additional meetings will be held October 21, at 6 pm at the Clearmont Town Hall; October 30th, at the Ranchester Community Center at 8 am and November 1st, at the Ranch @ Ucross, also at 8 in the morning.
The cap tax is a 1 percent tax that is used solely to fund infrastructure projects in the City of Sheridan, the municipalities of Clearmont, Dayton, and Ranchester, and in the County of Sheridan. Sheridan County voters will decide whether or not to renew the tax on Tuesday, November 5th.
