Red Grade Road will be closed Thursday from at least 8 in the morning until noon. The truck and trailer that went over the side of the road a couple weeks ago will be removed and the heavy equipment used will completely block the road.
Other business in yesterday’s Sheridan County Commission meeting included an agreement with WYDOT for using some County-owned land during the reconstruction of North Main Street next year.
Commissioners also gave their okay to a resolution that accepts $50,000 in Federal Energy Efficiency grant funds. The money will be used to upgrade the heating and cooling systems at the Fulmer Library. The new system is expected to use 20% fewer fossil fuels than the current equipment.
Sheridan County enacted a quitclaim deed to the City of Sheridan for the portion of Brundage Lane from Big Horn Avenue to the Airport. The City had already annexed the area surrounding the street some time ago.
Finally, in an attempt to clean up unprotected areas of Sheridan County, the Commissioners approved petitions from 13 landowners that wish to be placed in one of the County’s 6 fire districts. As more landowners voluntarily ask for fire protection, commissioners hope to eliminate the outliers one parcel at a time, if need be.
