Sheridan County Commission

A Ramaco Carbon plan to construct a public boat ramp and expand parking at the Kleenburn Recreation Area was approved after consideration by the Sheridan County Commission at their recent meeting.

Attorney Tony Wendtland, representing Ramaco, explained their plan for the Kleenburn area to the commission.

According to a release from Ramaco Carbon, they and others who choose to donate materials, labor or money to the project will pay all expenses related to the project’s design and construction.
The company and possibly one or more conservation organizations will share responsibility for maintenance of the boat ramp.
Ramaco Carbon CEO and Chairman Randall Atkins celebrated the agreement, and the opportunity to invest in the area, saying “We’re glad to do our part to enhance public recreation in this area near our future developments, and are grateful to everyone involved in making this happen.”

The improvement plan fits with the Sheridan County Land Trust master plan and vision for public recreation on the Tongue River in this area, according to Wendtland who said, “we hope and are encouraged the Land Trust will consider asking to be an amended party to the agreement when it meets to discuss it in August.”

The commission approved the plan unanimously.
