WESTMORLAND — The City Council here may be cracking down on residents who flood city streets.
At the council meeting Thursday, the council and city staffers talked about an ordinance that would fine residents who flood the streets.
Mayor Henry Halcon said the problem generally happens when residents leave their sprinklers or hoses on all night.
He said he had awakened several times to find water on his driveway from a neighbor's over-watering.
City staffers and residents at the meeting asked questions concerning residents washing cars or watering down dirt streets to lessen dust from rising.
Halcon responded the council would take everything into consideration when writing the ordinance. Halcon said he and others will put together an ordinance and present it at the next council meeting.
