Sheridan Media Week In Review

Sheridan Media Week In Review

Here's a look at the past week's top stories from Sheridan Media News:

The Sheridan County Commissioners had a lively morning Tuesday, as they heard two hours of public comment related to a Conditional Use Permit request to build a Big Horn Community Center and Tennis Facility. Proponents of the CUP said the Big Horn community badly needs a rec facility that's all their own. Opponents of the measure, mostly landowners, said the facility would hurt the integrity of the rural residential area. Commissioner, Steve Maier, was one of three commissioners who voted against granting the CUP.

Commissioners Bob Rolston and Terry Cram voted for the CUP, but the measure ultimately failed.

The Sheridan City Council has started daily budget work sessions to hear proposals from entities in the communities requesting a continuing allocation of optional one-cent funds. Director of development at the Senior Center, Rindy West, said the retirement of the baby boomer generation means she'll need more funds than ever.

The City council is also working to allocate funds for the city's Capital Improvement Plan.

Additionally, Sheridan Media's Chris Foy got an exclusive interview with Wyoming Representative, Cynthia Lummis, immediately after she sat on the U.S. House Oversight Committee's hearing of the terrorist attacks that took place last year in Benghazi. His full report is below.
