Petitions to enlarge the Story Fire District and the Sheridan Area Rural Fire District were recently considered and approved by the Sheridan County Commission.

Each petition was filed in the fall with Sheridan County Clerk and Recorder Eda Schunk Thompson.

Pursuant to state statute, the Board of County Commissioners for Sheridan County may enlarge a fire district without an election when it finds that all landowners and all voters/electors within the near area and the board of directors of the fire district agree to inclusion of the new area within the district.
