Sheridan County School District #1 supports the Tongue River Valley Joint Powers Board in their efforts to bring natural gas into the Tongue River Valley. The TRVJPBoard requested a donation of $15,000 to assist with the administrative costs associated with bringing natural gas into the valley. The town of Ranchester, town of Dayton and the school district along with multiple private donors have made donations. There was $15,000 budgeted in the FY2018 budget for this purpose. The district expects a savings of over $65,000 per year in heating costs once converted to natural gas.
