The Sheridan Area Water Supply Joint Powers Board continues to mull over the idea of eliminating the administrator position that is in charge of the day to day operation of SAWS. Current SAWS Administrator Dave Engels says that while the options remain open, the Board elected to table the matter.
The Board elected to table the matter so that the new Utilities Director for Sheridan gets up to speed on the situation. The first day for the new Utilities Director will be October 26th.
The Board also approved a change to the rate structure, eliminating the two-tier system that brought about its share of controversy.
SAWS customer Charlene Bodine, who's been adamantly opposed to the current rate structure, commended the Board for making the change in rates, and said that she hopes the Board sticks with the proposed changes.
