Last week Sheridan County hosted three public meetings to inform and educate people living within 100 meters of the Goose Creeks about water quality in the creeks and their tributaries. One suggestion that came from the meetings was to have the County Commissioners waive the $250 permit fee for septic systems. The Commissioners Tuesday morning discussed this possibility and directed County Public Works Director Rod Liesinger to draft a resolution to bring back to the Commission at their next meeting.
Liesinger stated to Commissioners that over 75 people showed up to take part in the three meetings. Rod said that County staff intends to show that same kind of commitment.
Liesinger stated that he intends to put together a resolution waiving the County's septic system permit fees that will encompass anyone living within 100 meters of the Goose Creeks or any of their tributaries.
