SHERMAN - Despite a Facebook group claiming the contrary, the Sherman County Department of Public Facilities Shop will not be permanently closing its doors.
The Sherman County Shop is one of three shops in the county responsible for the safe and efficient operation of the county's roads, bridges and tunnels. It houses equipment necessary for keeping roads safe, including some of the county's snow plows.
The Facebook group, "Save the Sherman County Shop," popped up over the weekend, stating: "It has been announced that as of April 5, 2013 the Sherman County shop will be closing." The group calls for residents to "save the Sherman shop" by reaching out to legislators and expressing their opinion.
This image taken from the Facebook page “Save the Sherman County Shop” provides misleading information. According to George Spanos, director of Public Facilities for the county, no shops are being closed, but the county is looking to see if it can run a two-shop operation during the summer months in an effort to save money.
