The Sheridan City Council met for their first meeting of June Monday night. Sheridan Media's Ron Richter was there and has the story.
The Council elected to table the 2nd reading of an ordinance that would change the City's liquor license fees. The ordinance would lower the restaurant liquor license from $1,500 a year to $600 a year as well as lower the fee for a second dispensing room from $1,000 to $400 annually. In order to make the change in fees revenue neutral, the ordinance would also raise the bar and grill license fee from $1,500 a year to $3,000.
City of Sheridan Clerk Scott Badley explains that they need some clarification from the state on the additional dispensing room before the Council can move forward with the item.
Badley says that Director of Enforcement Tom Montoya with the Wyoming State Liquor Association is the person that has been giving the City mixed signals about the second dispensing room.
The Council hopes to have some clarification on the matter before their next meeting on June 21st. The Council also approved a resolution to apply for a $210,000 WYDOT Teal Grant to construct a pathway through South Park. The pathway would run from Sheltered Acres Park to East Brundage Lane.
