WESTMORLAND — The City Council here might pass an ordinance that would crack down on residents who flood city streets.
The measure will be considered during a council meeting starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall.
The issue was brought up during a council meeting on July 6.
Mayor Henry Halcon said the problem generally occurs when residents leave their sprinklers or hoses on all night.
He said he has awakened several times to find water on his driveway from a neighbor's over-watering.
The council also is scheduled to discuss and take action on:
*An ordinance that changes when city water bills are due. Water bills currently are due at 5:30 p.m. on the 22nd day of the month. The council will consider changing the due time to 5 p.m. A problem surfaced when City Hall changed its closing hours from 5:30 to 5 p.m.
*The awarding of two contracts in the amounts of $30,950 and $18,700 to Dave Gaddis Construction for the rehabilitation of two residences in the city.
