Sheridan County commissioners have approved a revised memorandum of understanding – also known as an MOU – with the Sheridan police department for alcohol enforcement.

Action came during the commissioners’ meeting Tuesday.

The MOU was tabled from an earlier meeting pending revisions to the agreement. Ann Perkins, who’s the community prevention manager for the county, outlined the revisions.

The purpose of the MOU is to establish respective responsibilities of the county and Sheridan police in implementing certain alcohol enforcement and safety programs in Sheridan that are funded by a grant from the Wyoming Department of Health Prevention. The programs include alcohol compliance checks, bar checks and “Safe Ride.”

In other action during a meeting that lasted less than half an hour, commissioners approved vacation of Carbon Hill Road – also known as Beckton Hall Road – and vacation of easements for Range View Drive, Labbe Prestwick Drive and Thomas-Canyon View Drive. Commissioners also approved a lot size variance for Todd and Lisa Greig for property at 6705 and 6707 Big Horn Avenue.

The variance and vacations were all earlier approved by unanimous vote of the county planning and zoning commission.

Commissioners also approved six local banks as depositories for public funds of Sheridan County, which includes the county, Sheridan County Airport, Sheridan County Library System and the Sheridan County Fair Association.

Banks approved were Cowboy State Bank, First Federal Bank and Trust, Security State Bank, U.S. Bank and Wells Fargo Bank.
