Sheridan Town Meeting, July
Regular Town Council meeting held at Senior Center
This month’s Sheridan Town Council meeting opened with a reminder that the public meeting regarding the subdivision, previously postponed, will be held on July 26, 6 p.m., location to be determined. Mayor Stump encouraged people to look at the plans, and the source documents that can be found at the library or the Planning Board website. The council has been receiving comments on the pending subdivision for two years and are looking forward to residents bringing “solutions” to the meeting. The August 29th Planning Board Public hearing should bring a decision and clarity to the long-standing issue.
There were adjustments made to the 2021-2022 budget. Notably, an additional $36,902.60 from water projects was put back into the reserves.
Officer Duncan Hedges addressed the Sheriff’s update. Most incidents and calls for service were ordinary though he did state that identity theft has increased and there is a report of a scam with perpetrators claiming to be from Glacier Bank. The Sheriff’s Department keeps this information current on their Facebook page. There has also been an uptick in storage unit thefts in Twin Bridges and Ennis. Hedges reminded the council that the department is still shorthanded but is in the process of hiring three new officers.
Other updates include the Senior Center’s expansion needing further discussion and the members making a motion to hire a new public works employee to fill in the gaps currently being covered by Mayor Bob Stump. Also, the library is in need of board members
