There was plenty of debate by the Sheridan City Council Tuesday night about developing a random drug testing policy for the Sheridan Police and Fire Departments. Council approved a resolution that would direct the Interim Police Chief and Fire Chief to work with their employees on crafting a thorough random drug and alcohol policy. While in favor of a random drug testing policy, Councilor Steve Brantz was opposed to the resolution that was passed.
Councilor Ryan Mulholland stated that the resolution is a declaration of hope.
The resolution calls for a policy to be brought back to the City Council at their next meeting on March 1st. Mayor Dave Kinskey said that this is something that the City needs to stay ahead of since it is the 2nd incident within the last two years.
