The Sheridan County Commissioners held their first November meeting yesterday morning. They started by approving a pair of conditional use permits. One of which would allow the Turned Antiques business to display outdoor merchandise on their current location on Lower Piney Creek Road.
The other is a renewal of a C-U-P that allows Fidelity Exploration to continue to maintain a pipe storage yard on Lower Prairie Dog Road. Commissioners did have concerns that the property owners of the Turned Antiques business only asked for a C-U-P after a violation of zoning regulations was discovered.
In other business, people applying for the creation of a private road will now need to include a $10,000 bond with their application. Commissioner Bob Rolston says this will allow the County to recoup expenses incurred when the road is actually constructed, should it be necessary.
Commissioners also approved an agreement with the Wyoming State Department of Health that could mean an additional $140,000 in revenue used for personnel costs associated with H1N1 flu education and vaccination programs. It’s phase 3 of the state's H1N1 vaccination campaign. The funds could not be used for vaccines or capital projects at the Public Health Department.
