The Sheridan Area Water Supply Joint Powers Board considered adoption of the budget for the fiscal year that began on July 1 at their meeting Wednesday. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.

After a brief public hearing, the Joint Powers Board approved the budget for the fiscal year, which includes forecasted revenues of $5.2 million and total expenditures projected to be $4.2 million. Just prior to the budget approval, the board approved a resolution authorizing an increase in billing rates of 2.25 percent. SAWS Project Manager Dan Coughlin says that the rate increase is part of the financial plan for SAWS.

The Joint Powers Board also approved a resolution authorizing a Level I application to the Wyoming Water Development Commission to sponsor the Goose Creek Wildfire Hazard Mitigation Assessment in the Bighorn National Forest.
