The Sheridan City Council will meet for their first meeting of July this evening. Sheridan Media's Ron Richter has a preview of what's on tap.

Late last week the panel committee that was put together to review the three proposals that were submitted to the City for ambulance service recommended the proposal from Rocky Mountain Ambulance Service. That recommendation was then reviewed and discussed by City department heads, who agreed to request the support of the City Council to enter into contract negotiations with Rocky Mountain.

City Public Works Director Nic Bateson says that the City's financial situation is why they need to move forward with negotiations sooner rather than later.

A joint agreement between the City and County for creek restoration is another item that will be considered by Council this evening. Sheridan Mayor Dave Kinskey says that recent contamination of the Goose Creeks have prompted the restoration effort.

Adjusting cemetery fees, which haven't been raised since 1987, is also on tonight's agenda.

The Sheridan City Council will meet at 7 o'clock this evening on the third floor of City Hall in Council Chambers. The meeting can also be heard live on AM 1410 KWYO.
