Come Tuesday, voters will go to the polls to cast a vote for or against the capital facilities tax which will generate $40 million over the next 8 years for infrastructure.
For anyone who hasn’t registered, Elections Clerk Brenda Kekich says it’s not too late. In fact, any resident of the county can register at their polling place on Election Day.
She went on to say a photo ID is best.
To find the polling places, per precincts, she directed us to the county website – sheridancounty.com. The clerk said there are nearly 15,000 registered voters in Sheridan County.
If the capital facilities tax passes, the penny tax will keep the tax on the dollar at six cents. If the measure fails, the tax on the dollar will drop back to five cents.
Of the $40 million, the city of Sheridan would receive the lion’s share of just over $22.9 million, followed by the county’s nearly $12.6. The smaller communities of Ranchester and Dayton will receive $1.9 million and Clearmont, just over half a million.
