An ordinance to change the minimum street specifications and regulations for new developments was approved unanimously by the Sheridan City Council when they met Tuesday.

According to the Sheridan Headlight newspaper, the ordinance adds more regulations and testing to the new roads such as those in new subdivisions being built.

The newspaper quoted Sheridan Mayor Joe Wise as saying the city had spent a considerable amount of money on street repairs to fairly new roads because they were not compacted and tested well.

The ordinance sets a maximum penalty of $25,000.
