Council celebrates local victory With signing of oil revenue bill BY AMY VENN ,- Sidney Herald Sidney City Council celebrated a local victory last week with the signing of House Bill 656 by Gov. Bullock on Thursday. Mayor Rick Norby and Rep. Joel Kraut- ter (R-Sidney) attended the event. “I hate to say it, but this is my first major accomplishment in the Legislature,” Norby said at the council meeting Monday evening.
