Lake City changes water cut-off notices

Wednesday, March 3, 2004

The Lake City Council met on Feb. 23 and agreed to change water cut-off notices, drew up guidelines limiting yard sales, and made appointments to the Little League Board.

The council voted to do away with the posting of shut-off notices on customers' doors and depend on the bill notification of final day to pay.

The council agreed that many people wait to see the shut-off door hanger before paying. The process is very costly and time consuming to city employees. The new policy will be in effect with the March billing. The cut-off date for non-pay will remain the 25th day of each month.

The council voted to follow through with limiting yard sales and are in the process of finalizing guidelines.

Two yard sales will be authorized per year, per address, including businesses. Property owners who live on highways are asked to arrange in advance for off-highway parking. Individuals will need to register with city hall at leas three days in advance of sale.

The owner of the property used for the sale will be responsible for taking away any signs that have been posted. An ordinance will be presented for official adoption at the March meeting.

Three Little League board members were appointed to fill vacancies. These include Michelle Davis, Christie Snyder, and Norman Eidson. One more position is left to fill.

Mayor Jerry Bowman reported on renovation and construction at the new senior center informing the council that work will be completed when the second half of the $50,000 state grant is received.

The next regularly scheduled council meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. March 15 at city hall.
