The Sheridan City Council addressed liquor license fees at their meeting Monday night. Sheridan Media's Ron Richter has the story.
At the request of the Sheridan City Council, City Clerk Scott Badley has put together an ordinance modifying the City's annual liquor license fees for bar and grill and restaurant licenses. Badley explains the ordinance that the Council approved on 1st reading.
The ordinance drew strong opposition from Councilor Steve Brantz.
Sheridan County Liquor Dealers Association Secretary Carol Davis voiced her disapproval of the ordinance, saying that the change would make it easier for some and harder on others. Councilors Steve Brantz and Robert Webster voted against the ordinance, with the rest of the Council voting in favor of it. There will be two more readings on the liquor license fee modification before it takes effect.
