Squeaky wheel gets the grease
SHERIDAN — A proposed nuisance abatement resolution received a unanimous no vote from the Sheridan County Commission Tuesday after a half hour of public comment.
According to Chairman Nick Siddle, the commission had heard from citizens both in favor of and opposed to the ordinance during the 45-day public comment period prior to the vote. But the 11 who gave public comment Tuesday morning were almost unanimously against the resolution, which ultimately influenced the commission’s vote.
“Certainly it’s a two-sided issue, and the side we heard today from the people who were here was pretty overwhelming, but it is kind of a squeaky wheel gets the grease thing,” Siddle said.
