Monday we reported that Byran Bettcher, owner of Extreme Auto Body in Sheridan was upset over the city's decision to use an out-of-state company to repair hail damage to several of the police department vehicles.

Sheridan Police Captain Scott Chandler explains what factored into the the decision to use Hail U.S.A., a business that's been set up in the parking lot of the old L.B.M. Building on Coffeen Avenue for the past several months.

Chandler mentioned that the estimate from Hail U.S.A. was substantially lower than the two local estimates they received, but just how much lower was it?

Chandler added that when events occur like the storms this summer that produced large hail, local businesses sometimes become swamped to the point that you have to look elsewhere for service and repairs.
