Tonight's Sheridan City Council meeting is sure to go well into the evening as there are a number of contentious issues that will be addressed.
Sheridan Mayor Dave Kinskey explains that before the Council digs into the meat of the agenda, there are a few items on consent that will be dealt with.
The Council will consider a rezone request of just over three acres of property adjacent to the site of the Green House for Living project in northwest Sheridan. The item actually came before the Council at their last meeting in March.
Developer Steve Grimshaw is requesting that the zoning on the property be changed from R-1 Residential to R-3 Residential. Grimshaw is proposing to build a 3-to-4 story 54-unit senior independent living facility on the property.
Another item that is sure to draw its share of debate is the request to transfer a retail liquor license from Richard and Rebecca Howell to the Wal-Mart Superstore on Coffeen Avenue.
The retail license was retained by the Howell's, who were the owners of Pablo's Mexican Restaurant. Chopstix, the current business in the old Pablo's building, chose to apply for a restaurant liquor license, which meant that the retail license stayed with the Howells.
Tonight's Sheridan City Council meeting will get underway at 7 o'clock in Council Chambers at City Hall. The meeting will also be broadcast live on AM 1410 KWYO.
