Almost three years ago the City of Sheridan hired MC2 Engineering Inc. to inspect under a court order, a piece of property at 1135 North Crook Street in Sheridan to assess whether it was a dangerous building and in need of abatement. The report indicated that the parts of the building which were accessible were not structurally sound, and that access to the entire building was impaired by the extreme amount of personal property in and around the property.
Over the next couple of years what ensued were numerous court hearings and inspections of the property, along with several agreements with the City to purchase and clean up the property that ultimately fell through. Sheridan Mayor Dave Kinskey says that they have given the property owner, every opportunity to avoid forced abatement.
Mr. Pruitt has appealed the City's Order of Abatement a number of times to no avail. Thursday at noon in Council Chambers, the Sheridan City Council will hold a special meeting to hear Pruitt's final appeal.
