Yesterday, The Sheridan County Commissioners voted unanimously to alter their contract with EnTech Engineering, which is working on designing implementation projects for the Sheridan County Fairgrounds. EnTech had been designing a new parking lot and landscape work to fix drainage issues on the west side of the fairgrounds. The Sheridan County Fair Association Board requested EnTech to design the infield drainage project first. County Commissioner Tom Ringley was concerned with the change in priorities.
The County has already spent over $18,000 on Phase 1 designs and now that work will be put on the shelf to begin working on Phase 2 of the master plan implementation projects.
It will cost the County an additional $7,000 to make the contract change. The Phase 2 project will remedy drainage issues in the arenas and infield areas, as well as, re-align the east entrance to the fairgrounds at Lewis and Kentucky Streets.
