Sheridan County Commissioners Approve A $500,000 Loan For Airport Water Systems

Due to the ongoing construction at the Sheridan County Courthouse, the Sheridan County Commissioners held their regular meeting today at Sheridan College. The consent agenda included approval of a letter of support for the Green House Living Project for Sheridan. The regular agenda included consideration of a revolving fund loan agreement with the Office of State Lands and Investments for Sheridan County Airport water systems.  Renee Obermueller, Administrative Director for Sheridan County says this 500,000 loan is a good safeguard considering revenue and budget shrinkage. Also, she says.

The Commissioners also awarded a project to supply and deliver crushed base material to County Road 64.  They awarded the project to Mountain View Building, Inc., for a total of just under $329,000. The engineering estimate for this project was just over $417, 000.

What a deal.The city and

What a deal.The city and county wasted all of their Methane funds on "affordable housing" to line the pockets of a select few developers and realtors,so they have to take out $500k worth of loan.Gillette on the other hand saved their methane funds and are spending it on water and sewer projects.The sewer project is large enough that Mike Cole left the city of sheridan to work for gillette.

The public needs to give the county a big thank you for allowing the tax payer to not only pay for developers to have half a million dollars worth of fee waivers,but also pay for $500k worth of infrastructure that should have been covered by methane funds,but instead went to line the pockets of private entities..
