Sheridan Needs Funding

Sheridan, Wy – Sheridan's Mayor is not surprisingly behind the Governors push to provide more money to local government. Governor Freudenthal has a proposal that could get 100 million in new dollars to cities, towns and counties. Sheridan Mayor Jim Wilson says the Governor is on the right track because local governments like his have a variety of needs and no other way to raise revenue. He says Sheridan needs upgrade to water and sewer plants, along with replacement of water lines under streets.
