The decision to create a chief of staff position for the City of Sheridan and subsequently appoint Sheridan Police Chief Richard Adriaens to that position on an interim basis was explained by Sheridan Mayor John Heath at Monday night's City Council meeting.
Mayor Heath said that he wasn't too proud to admit that he needs some help during this transition.
Heath pointed out that the position of chief of staff isn't exactly new to the city.
In other business from the meeting, the council approved a request to subdivide nearly 11 acres into two lots zoned R-3 residential. The Cloud Peak Ranch 18th Filing Minor Subdivision is located northeast of Bruce Mountain Drive and Mydland Road in Sheridan.
North Star Construction of Gillette was awarded the bid for phase three of the Wyoming Avenue/Park Street area reconstruction project. North Star's bid was in the amount of $2.56 million.
