During the public comment period of Monday night's Sheridan City Council meeting, Local Firefighter Union President George Neeson addressed the Council about his concern with the way the City layoffs were handled, in particular, at Sheridan Fire Rescue.
Neeson feels that the City could have been more clear in indicating who's job was safe and who's wasn't.
Neeson said that the two positions that were laid off at Sheridan Fire Rescue were that of a paramedic and an EMT intermediate. Since the two employees didn't take the voluntary buyout, they didn't receive as much compensation as those who did. Neeson hopes that the City will reconsider their stance on the matter and offer the same package as those who took voluntary buyouts.
