How Are Capital Facilities Tax Revenues Distributed?

Sheridan County voters approved the capital facilities tax in August. Now that the county should start seeing revenues from that tax, the City of Sheridan has been asked to alter the way the money is distributed. In prior taxes, all the entities involved have agreed to direct all revenues from the taxes for a few months to the smaller communities and their projects. City Councilor Bob Webster tells us why the Council has concerns about the request.

The Council tabled the matter at their meeting last night and postponed the reconsideration to their first meeting in December.

In other action, the Firefighters’ Union requested the City re-open negotiations into their wages and the City Council approved the request. Councilors Ryan Mulholland and John Heath were appointed to the negotiating team after a lengthy executive session.
