SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) - As the Sheridan County Airport prepares to resume commercial air passenger service, the county is unsure if there will be Transportation Security Administration officials to do security checks before flights take off.

The Sheridan Press reports (https://bit.ly/1M2PX2a ) that a contract for flight service out of Sheridan was signed last week, but TSA officials have not returned to the airport.

TSA left when the Sheridan airport stopped commercial service earlier this year. Officials said they would return if commercial service resumed, but the start date of Nov. 19 is around the corner and agents aren’t in sight.

Sheridan County Commissioner Steve Maier says if TSA agents don’t arrive before the first flight, passengers will have to get off the plane in Denver and be bussed to TSA as if they were catching a flight from that airport.
