Sheridan College Bond Issue
Vote “Yes” on August 20
Why a bond initiative?
Bond measures are the tool specified by state statute for community colleges to raise money from the community.
Despite this, of the last $48 million in improvements at Sheridan College since 1976, 66% came from private foundations and donations, and 33% came from the State of Wyoming. Of the 12 buildings that make up the college’s Strategic Facilities Plan through 2020, the Tech Center is the only one targeted to request Sheridan County taxpayer support.
How would passage of the bond initiative affect property taxes? The bond initiative would increase property taxes in Sheridan County by approximately $2.09 per month per $100,000 of home value, for no more than 16 years. That’s approximately $56.40 per year for Sheridan’s median home value of $224,900.
