City of Sheridan Discusses Needs, Wants and Projects With Legislators

During the Legislative Forum Tuesday in Sheridan, state legislators heard from local government, school districts and other organizations speaking that were requesting funds, discussing issues, or asking them to address legislation in the upcoming session that begins in January.

Sheridan Mayor Roger Miller spoke on behalf of the city, giving the legislators a report detailing projects, outlining finances, highlighting departments and offering other information they could read in their spare time concerning where previous state funding was used by the city.

The mayor touched on needs the city has, such as purchasing a new fire ladder truck with the help of state funding, projects that are underway or will be soon like those involving Kennon Products, the North Main interchange, Vacutech, city water and sewer lines and the Weatherby project.
He also touched on the proposed VA skilled nursing facility that Sheridan hopes to be awarded.

Mayor Miller also discussed the importance of the $1.7 million in direct distribution funding Sheridan gets from the state, and requested that the legislators continue the funding.

Mayor Miller was asked by former mayor and current State Senator Dave Kinskey about the status of the Double Day Sports Complex, and we will have more on that in an upcoming story.
