Sheridan Recreation District Eyes Budget

The budget numbers for the coming year for the Sheridan Recreation District are up more than $92,000 over last year.

Recreation District Director Richard Wright said he anticipates $1.2 million in revenues for the year ahead.

He said a big reason is the increase in revenues from the district's sports programs.

District board members received their first look at projected budget figures in a meeting Wednesday. The district anticipates receiving just under $245,000 from the city in the year that begins on July 1, and more than $384,000 from the district mill levy. Revenues from sports and other programs and from the community are expected to round out the budget numbers.

In other action, the board put on hold a proposed addendum to the district's agreement with Sheridan College for maintenance of the softball complex. The facility is southeast of the Bruce Hoffman Golden Dome on the college campus. The college has asked the district to renew the agreement for one year only while college officials review and possibly revise plans for use of facilities.

Wright spoke of the district's past relations with the college.

District board members asked Wright to see if the agreement can be extended for two years instead of one.
