The Sheridan City Council approved a resolution that implements a "Buy Local" policy statement for all City employees.
Council President John Bigelow stated that he has worked with the Downtown Sheridan Association and the Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce on fine-tuning the policy statement.
What the Council approved was just a policy statement; the actual policy itself is still being worked on by City staff.
In other council news, under the advice from City Prosecuting Attorney Alison Ochs, the Council once again tabled an ordinance on the abatement of buildings.
Ochs stated to the Council that due to concerns expressed by staff and by Councilors, she needed another couple of weeks to finish crafting the policy for the Council's consideration.
