Sheridan officials pulled out all the stops last week to showcase what the community has to offer businesses looking to branch out or relocate. A coalition of community leaders took a consultant on a tour of the area to get feedback about how the amenities offered here would be received by businesses. The tour included interviews with public officials and business owners as well as a show-and-tell session of several business parks. Renee Obermueller, Sheridan County Administrative Director, said there seemed to be a common line of communication among the many community members who played host during the tour.
The tour, sponsored primarily by Forward Sheridan, received financial support from the county. Obermueller said the recruitment dry run shows that Sheridan has come a long way in terms of infrastructure and utilities for new businesses.
Sheridan Mayor, Dave Kinskey, said he's also pleased with how things went, but feels we should have been at this point a long time ago.
The consultant said one of Sheridan's strongest points is the available workforce here is relatively highly educated.
