The City of Sheridan took several steps Monday night in moving the West 5th Street reconstruction project forward. The City Council accepted the West 5th reconnaissance inspection report; the cooperative agreement with WYDOT and Sheridan County on reconstructing West 5th; the memorandum of understanding for the transfer of ownership of West 5th and the agreement for the reconnaissance report for the Sheridan West Corridor.
City of Sheridan Public Works Director Nic Bateson says that they've been working on the issue with the County for sometime.
Bateson said that they intend to begin advertising for more public involvement on what the community would like to see included in the West 5th Street reconstruction project. The project will range from Mydland Road to the beginning of Soldier Creek Road. Once the project is complete, the County would transfer ownership of the road to the City.
