Sheboygan Retains Residency Requirement

by

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (WHBL) - The Sheboygan City Council Tuesday night refused to repeal its ordinance requiring all newly-hired non-union employees to live within the city limits.  Some aldermen felt the residency requirement limits the number of qualified candidates the city gets for open positions.  Alderman Don Hammond said it’s difficult to get people to sell their homes and move for a 15 dollar per hour job.  But Alderman Jim Bohren, who helped draft the original ordinance four years ago, disagreed, saying those jobs are worth a lot more than 15 dollars per hour when you consider the city's generous benefit package.  The council then voted 9 to 6 to keep the residency requirement.
