Signs and animals were topics of consideration at Monday night’s Sheridan City Council meeting. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.
The Council approved third and final reading of ordinance #2233, which deals with animals at large, aggressive animals and cruelty/neglect of animals. Prior to approval of the ordinance, an amendment that would have prohibited the declawing of cats within the City failed to pass by a vote of 5 to 2, with Councilors Jacob Martin and Shawn Day voting in favor of the amendment that would have essentially deemed cat declawing as animal cruelty. Councilor Day said in his eyes, it is indeed animal cruelty.
Councilor Steve Brantz discussed why he voted against the amendment.
The Council also voted to pass first reading of an ordinance that amends the City’s current ordinance pertaining to signs. We’ll have more on that item as well as other news from the Council meeting in future stories.
