A Call for Signatures

A petition has been circulating around Sheridan in an effort to put Charter Ordinance #2202, the City Administrator Ordinance, on the ballot for a special election. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.

At their July 1 meeting, the Sheridan City Council, by a vote of 6 to 1, approved Charter Ordinance #2202, the City Administrator Ordinance. #2202 replaced Charter Ordinance #2158, the original City Administrator Ordinance that was approved in 2015. Sheridan resident Brian Miller has been busy as of late gathering signatures to put the City Administrator Ordinance on the ballot, via a demand for a referendum vote.

The petition needs to be submitted to the City Clerk’s office within 60 days after the second publication of the charter ordinance, which was Wednesday, July 17. Miller said that he ran into a few hurdles at City Hall gathering the needed information for the petition.

Miller said that he’s going to be collecting the signatures soon to begin the validation process.

In order for a special election to occur, the number of valid signatures on the petition has to be at least 10 percent of the number of ballots cast in the 2018 Election, which was 6,417, meaning there would have to be 642 valid signatures for a referendum on the issue.
