The City of Sheridan is taking a hard close look at raising the fees associated with the two new Bar and Grill Licenses that were approved earlier this year by the Legislature.

The City Council Monday heard from Deputy City Clerk Cecilia Good, who outlined the details of what’s being proposed for fee increases. She said that for the two new bar and grill licenses, there will be a fee of $10,500, which will drop to $3,000 for annual renewal after one-year of operation, and change to $1,500 for the third year of renewal.

City Administrator Mark Collins said that the fee schedule that is being proposed is very similar to what other municipalities in the State have implemented.

The fee increase will apply to the two additional licenses only, as the four current bar and grill license holders in Sheridan will continue to pay $1,500 a year for renewal of their license. The fee increase will be considered by the Council at their meeting next Monday night. Good said that if the fee increase is approved, the City will begin advertising for applicants for the licenses and will review the applications in October, with the Council awarding the licenses in November. She said the licenses will be available for use beginning January 1st of next year.
