Sheridan officials plan tours of new court building

SHERIDAN – Tours of the new courthouse in the Town of Sheridan’s municipal complex will be available on May 26.

Town officials decided to have an open house event for the court building from 10 to 11:30 a.m. before the Memorial Day Parade at noon.

The announcement was made at the regular meeting of the Town Board held Thursday in the community building.

The town purchased the former St. John Bosco Church, rectory and church hall on Route 20. The town offices have been moved into the building.

The courtrooms will be the last of the official offices to relocate.

Renovations are nearly complete with only a handicap entrance and some furnishings remaining for the conversion.

Town officials have not decided what will become of the old Town Hall on the corner of Route 20 at Center Road.

In other business, Town Clerk Julie Szumigala announced that property taxes were collected through the end of March before delinquent bills were turned over to Chautauqua County.

She said $1.9 million of the $2.1 million warrant was collected.

The council members will hold a special meeting at 3 p.m. Thursday to consider bond anticipation notes to fund a culvert replacement project on Chapin Road.

The board will also consider a zoning variance for increasing the size of signs for businesses in the industrial park.

The purchase of a John Deere loader at a cost of $111,040 was approved for the Highway Department.
