A local joint powers board amended their user agreement Wednesday to allow for one of the participating agencies to withdraw from the board. Sheridan Media's Ron Richter has the story.


In December of last year, Sheridan County School District #2 gave written notice of its intent to withdraw from the Sheridan Economic and Educational Development Authority Joint Powers Board. The governing bodies of the joint powers board, the City of Sheridan, the Northern Wyoming Community College District and the School District executed a memorandum of understanding to the agreement between the three entities that would allow for the withdrawal.

Legal counsel for the three agencies later determined that this wasn't consistent with state statute, so the SEEDA Board Wednesday approved amendments to the joint powers board agreement that will now set the wheels in motion for the school district's withdrawal. SEEDA Administrator Robert Briggs.

Briggs said that the withdrawal of the school district from the joint powers board will not affect the way the board functions or have any bearing on applying for state grants through the Business Council.
