CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Cheyenne City Council unanimously approved a lengthy consent agenda during its regular meeting Monday after two members recused themselves.

Ward II Councilmember Dr. Mark Rinne and Ward III Councilmember Richard Johnson removed themselves from the consent agenda discussion. Johnson said his conflict involved the renewal of Contract No. 6837 between the City of Cheyenne and Delta Dental for group dental insurance benefits for city employees. Rinne said he had a “perceived conflict” with one of the consent agenda items, but did not specify which one.
