Details on Cap Tax road projects for Sheridan County have now been included on a website called sheridancountycaptax.com.

According to information provided there, the Cap Tax would generate $1.67 million for the county to spend this year and next. The roads to be worked on during that time frame are listed as Red Grade, Bird Farm, Hersey, Buffalo Creek, Amsden, Tongue Canyon, Kooi, Kleenburn, East Ridge, Pass Creek, Maverik or Little Goose Bridge and West Fifth street. The work will include grading, resurfacing, constructing culverts and installing fencing and cattle guards.

County commission Chairman Steve Maier told business leaders gathered Wednesday for the Chamber luncheon that brochures detailing the projects were going out in the mail and early voting on the one cent tax is an option.

He also laid out the perimeters of the tax.

He said the tax will stay in place until $40 million is collected, which is projected to be about eight years. Again, that website to go to for details on the county projects and those for each individual town in the county is -- www.sheridancountycaptax.com.
