The $3.3 billion budget bill that Wyoming Governor Matt Mead signed last week included $175 million in appropriations to local governments. Sheridan Mayor Dave Kinskey says that our local legislators played a role in making sure that dollar amount stayed the same throughout the budget session.
While the City will receive more from the state over the next two years than the previous budget, the extra funding does come with a stipulation.
The Mayor added that its one time money that the City will put to good use on one time purposes. The City will receive just under $4 million over the next two years. The funds will come in two separate distributions, the first this August, and the second in August of 2015.
