WESTMORLAND — The City Council will hear a proposal by the city consultant Joel Hamby regarding raising rates on water and wastewater services.
Early in the year, Hamby went before the council to ask for the rate increase.
Hamby proposed the increase because the city did not have a reserve fund for the under-construction water and wastewater plants.
The council did not take action but instead directed Hamby to wait to see how the plant construction goes and then come before the council again.
Also during the meeting:
· The council, in a public hearing, will discuss and take action on several proposed zoning changes.
George Galvan of The Holt Group said, "The city's map has some questionable zones, so we are trying to update them so everything in the city is compatible with each other."
