Sculley targeting junk food

City Manager Sheryl Sculley has declared war on sugar.  Well, at least when it comes to sodas and candy bars. Sugary sodas no longer have a home in the city's 250 beverage vending machines, and unhealthy foods in the 75 snack machines in city facilities are next.  “I asked the staff to remove the high-calorie soda drinks from our vending machines,” Sculley said. “I'm a fitness person, and I care about our employees, and I want them to be healthy. And I think this is a very small gesture.”

The new policy is only for vending machines and doesn't ban employees from consuming fatty foods and sugary drinks at work.  “But we don't have to promote it,” Sculley said.
