The cost of cleaning up two lots on Decker Road has been estimated at about $79,000, but Gary Koltiska wants to know how much of that will be paid by the Sheridan Economic and Educational Development Authority.

Koltiska, who's a member of the SEEDA Joint Powers Board, asked that question during a meeting of SEEDA Tuesday at Sheridan College.

Lane Thompson, who's the city of Sheridan public works director, said he didn't have a firm figure for SEEDA's share of the cost. Koltiska said SEEDA wasn't doing its job as a board by not getting that information.

One of the lots belongs to SEEDA and the other to the city of Sheridan. Mark Collins, Sheridan city administrator, said he believes the clean-up will be beneficial.

In other action Tuesday, the SEEDA board ratified amended contracts for Arete Design Group and Dick Anderson Construction for work to be done on the Weatherby project. The Arete contract is for just over $916,000, and the contract to Anderson Construction is for just under $12 million.

Board members also approved a motion made by SEEDA member Dr. Paul Young that SEEDA pay Sheridan College $77,000 for fiscal year 2019 to cover the cost of college personnel who will provide support to the SEEDA board. Young explained.

Board members discussed the matter in an executive session, then voted approval in an open session that followed. SEEDA consists of representatives of the city of Sheridan and Sheridan College.

In other action, SEEDA Chairman Ken Thorpe appointed members to a committee for a possible housing study, a nominating committee and a budget committee.
