    Sarah Pridgeon|May 11, 2023

    Spring is clearly in the air for the City of Sundance, with much of Tuesday’s council meeting taken up with discussions of work in progress or soon to begin. The council hosted a public hearing for a grant application it intends to submit to WYDOT to fund a new box culvert under 3rd Street. Mayor Paul Brooks explained that the city has been denied on this grant in the past because it had not solicited public input, and is therefore doing so now. No comments or objections were forthcoming from the audience, so the grant application will be m...

  • City anticipates double the liquor licenses New law will eventually increase bar and grill liquor licenses from two to six

    Sarah Pridgeon|May 11, 2023

The intent was to phase out the current population formulas used to figure out how many licenses a municipality or county can have. The population formulas currently allocate two licenses to Sundance. One of those is in use by Uncle Louie’s Diner, while the other is sti...

    Sarah Pridgeon|May 11, 2023

    Every so often, something crops up that leads you to question the way things have always been done. Such was the case last week for the county commissioners, when County Attorney Joe Baron and County Clerk Melissa Jones brought to their attention a quirk in how the county’s audit is set up. Specifically, Crook County Weed & Pest is included as a “component part” of the county’s audit, along with the library and fair. However, said Baron, the latter two entities are considered to be “component parts” because they share in the county’s 12...
