Infrastructure Projects May Not Be Completed If Capital Facilities Tax Measure Fails

In just under two weeks, Sheridan County voters will be asked whether or not they wish to continue the capital facilities tax. The tax is a 1% sales tax that is currently being collected in the county. If voters approve the measure they will notice no change in sales tax. Sheridan Mayor Dave Kinskey says if they do not approve the tax, the city will have a tough time completing much needed infrastructure projects.

Sheridan County, the City of Sheridan, and the other towns have all identified critical road and infrastructure projects that would be funded by the tax if it’s passed.

Last night, an informational meeting was held for Story residents and those meetings will continue as we get closer to the election on August 18th. The next presentation will take place tonight at Sheridan City Hall at 7 pm.

too bad

I'm sorry that the city of SHeridan may not get money for every pet project concievable, but with an economy in the dump they need to learn to make do.
