Gas pipeline upgrades to begin in Sidney
Contract crews working for Vectren Energy Delivery (Vectren) will soon begin replacing gas mains and service lines in Sidney as part of the company’s pipeline replacement program, which is a multi-year program to replace about 700 miles of bare steel and cast iron pipeline infrastructure throughout Ohio. In Sidney, nearly $2.7 million will go toward retiring nearly four miles of gas main and more than 300 service lines in 2018. Since 2009, approximately 16 miles have been retired within the city. Vectren intends to retire approximately 27 miles in Sidney over the next several years. To read the entire press release click here.

Citizens' Police Academy
The Sidney Police Department is pleased to announce that it will be conducting a Citizens' Police Academy for the residents of Sidney, and those who are affiliated with an organization within the city limits. We have surveyed the community and met with community partners to develop a curriculum based upon the topics that the citizens would find the most beneficial to learn. Classes will be on Wednesdays from February 28 2018 to May 2 2018 from 6:30pm to 9:00pm.

The program is designed to give the citizens of Sidney an overview of how the department operates, and an in-depth view of its policies. The goal is to build bonds between the community and the department, through trust and understanding.

Application and Brochure are listed below or can be obtained at the Sidney Police Department. The deadline to submit applications is February 16th 2018.
