City meeting on water meter replacements @ Sheridan County YMCA
Apr 6 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — City staff will host a public meeting on Wednesday from 6-7 p.m. at the Sheridan County YMCA youth room to discuss a water meter replacement project.

The project will begin this fall. Most water meters in Sheridan County are about 20 years old and in need of replacement.

Later this year the city of Sheridan and the Sheridan Area Water Supply Joint Powers Board will begin installing new water meters in approximately 9,000 locations across the county. Meter-reading infrastructure within the water service area also will be updated.

State grants will cover half of the project costs. The remaining cost of the project will be managed with a 20-year, zero-percent state loan.

According to city officials, installing meters all at once also allows for bulk purchasing, efficient use of city resources and convenient/consistent installation for citizens.

The next steps include the city hiring a vendor to design the infrastructure and to procure and install the meters.

City officials estimate that the project will begin by the end of this year. Customers will be notified when installations begin in their area so that they may schedule a convenient time for meter replacement.

The Sheridan County YMCA is located at 417 N. Jefferson St.

Civic Theatre Guild to produce ‘Yankee Tavern @ Carriage House Theater
May 6 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

SHERIDAN — The Civic Theatre Guild will open Yankee Tavern, a play by Steven Dietz, at the Carriage House Theater on May 6 at 7:30 p.m.

“Yankee Tavern” is set in a run-down Manhattan bar, five years after the attacks of 9/11, while the memory of the event is still a fresh wound. The most frequent patron of the bar extols his vast array of conspiracy theories at the slightest prodding, and on this day, a stranger visits the bar, who seems to verify some of these theories specifically regarding 9/11.

This suspenseful mind-bender will have you laughing one minute and on the edge of your seat the next.

“This play really explores a lot of ground worth covering,” director Aaron Odom said. “Hopefully, the ideas put forth in this play will stick with the audiences for a long time after they’ve left the theater.”

The cast features John Goodell, Jennifer Reed, Spencer Walters and Josh Hanson. The show will run April 29-30 and May 1, 6-8, and 12-14 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students, seniors and active military and can be purchased in advance at the WYO Theater box office, online at wyotheater.com or 30 minutes prior to the show’s commencement at the Carriage House Theater box office.
