For the next two and a half weeks, the Sheridan City Council will be holding budget work sessions over the noon hour to hear from each department within the City. Monday's work session began with Mayor Dave Kinskey reading an address that touched on everything from economic development to the quality of life in Sheridan.
City Treasurer Jennifer Reed stated to the Council that the general fund budget this year will be $10.2 million, which is a little bit higher than the previous year due to the raise in fuel tax.
Human Resources Director Heather Doke spoke about the importance of maintaining an attractive employee benefit package.
The City is currently accepting proposals for a pay study that will be done this summer. Doke says that the City hasn't conducted a pay study since 2005.
Doke said that she anticipates the pay study to begin in June and that they are hoping to have results of the study available in August.
