Sheridan County Joint Powers Board

Sheridan County Travel & Tourism is funded by the 4% Lodging Tax collected by Sheridan County hotels, motels, B&Bs, cottages, and RV parks. The Lodging Tax was initially approved by voters in 1992 and has been approved every four years since.
Sheridan County Travel & Tourism efficiently leverages Lodging Tax funds to unify, inspire, and lead the local travel industry in marketing Sheridan County, Wyoming as a year-round, individual, meeting, incentive and group destination to both domestic and international markets, in a manner that is consistent with Sheridan’s community values.
This tax is not paid by hotel, resort, RV, guest ranch, camp site or motel owners. This tax is not paid by local residents. It is paid only by visitors staying in overnight accommodations.

Board Meetings

The Sheridan County Travel & Tourism Board of Commissioners meet on the third Thursday of each month at 11:00am, at the Sheridan Visitor and Information Center.
Due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, board meetings have been held virtually since March 2020. While we continue to practice safe social distancing measures, meetings will be held through virtual meeting software. To request access to the monthly meeting login credentials, please contact our office at (307)673-7120.
