The Sheridan City Council met last night and they will ask WYDOT for over $300,000 in Safe Routes to School funds. The money would fund half of a project to install sidewalks in the neighborhoods around Meadowlark School.
An ordinance annexing over 500 acres west of Sheridan passed the Council on second reading. There is still one more reading before the annexation is final.
The Council also approved an agreement with Sheridan County to construct water line extensions that will connect two dead end lines at the airport. The County will own the extensions until the State Revolving Fund loan is paid off. County Grant Administrator Mike Mackey says the project will cost the County nearly half a million dollars.
Mountain View Building in Sheridan was awarded the bid to complete the Sugarland Utilities Project for just under $2.4 Million. The project will replace deteriorating infrastructure along Sugarland Drive and Coffeen Avenue.
Finally, the Council voted against allowing smaller communities to get most of their capital facilities tax monies up front. Several council members were concerned the loss of that revenue for even two months could place a shortfall in the 2010 budget.
