Sheridan County commissioners have given notice of their intent to establish rules and regulations for the declaration and abatement of nuisances in the county.

Action came during the commissioners’ meeting Tuesday. The commissioners’ attorney, Clint Beaver, said the proposed rules would allow Sheridan County for the first time to implement a statute that’s been in effect for a little over 10 years in other Wyoming counties.

Beaver said adoption of the notice of intent started the process for the county’s formal consideration of rules and regulations. Written comments will be accepted until Friday, April 30, and a public hearing to receive oral comments on the proposed rules and regulations will be held at 9 a.m. May 4, which is the day of the commissioners’ regular meeting.

Commissioners will consider adopting the proposed rules and regulations at that meeting.

Copies of the proposed rules and regulations are available from the Sheridan County commissioners’ office in Suite 201 at the Sheridan County Courthouse. The proposed rules and regulations may also be viewed on the county website.

Written comments on the proposed rules and regulations may be submitted to the Board of County Commissioners, 224 S. Main Street, Sheridan, WY 82801 or be emailed to

Gentrification is a nuisance if you consider your house as your home rather than a disposable asset to make a quick buck on. Too bad the commissioners don’t care about protecting people from getting forced from their homes due to rising property taxes. You may think this is ok, till some millionaire who can’t afford to live in Jackson decides to move here and thinks that your old Ford truck that your dad handed down to you is a nuisance.
