RANCHESTER — Ranchester Town Council met for its regular meeting Tuesday and discussed progress on a few projects around town.
The chip seal project on the northern side of Ranchester is expected to be completed this week, Town Clerk Teri Laya said. The streets to be chip sealed included Railway, Carl, Betty, H, Gillette, Weare, Coffeen, Campbell and West Halbert Streets, Big Horn Drive, and First, Second, Third and Fourth Avenue West.
The council also discussed progress on the Safe Routes to School project on the northwest side of town. Concrete pouring should be finished this week and landscaping should wrap up next week, Laya said. Streets and sidewalks improved in the project include the south side of Betty Street between Carl and Weare Streets, Weare Street from Betty Street to U.S. Highway 14 and Gillette Street from Hardin to Halbert Streets.
In other business, the Ranchester Town Council:
• approved Erin Carbert, Ranchester’s law enforcement officer, to attend a training in Cheyenne in December.
• announced it is looking for someone from Ranchester to serve on the Juvenile Justice Board. As most meetings are held during the day in Sheridan, the ideal candidate would be someone who works in Sheridan, Laya said.
• approved bills for the month of August. Payroll was $23,881.33, and manual checks were $191,358.04, which includes payments to contractors for the chip sealing and Safe Routes to School projects, Laya said.
• decided it will discuss the proposed Stonebrook V subdivision at its meeting Sept. 17 when town Engineer Chris Johnson is present.
