Board of Works reviews possible ordinances

Thursday, January 26, 2012

The Board of Works met Thursday and reviewed possible ordinances that may be added, as well as meeting dates and times moving forward.

The Brazil Utilities Office presented a list of ordinances to the board, that it would like to be updated or established.

The possible changes are:

* Cleaning Fee -- The wording needs to be changed from once a month to every 30 days,

* Sewer Liens -- A sewer lien can be filed on an address if the sewer portion of the bill is 90 days delinquent,

* Inactive Bills -- If an account has an inactive balance owed, water service cannot be restored until the balance has been paid, this is in reference to customers complaining they wanted to see an ordinance stating the rule. Mayor Brian Wyndham said the board will do the research to figure out if an ordinance is actually needed,

* New Service Taps -- The water tap fees need to be changed to not include the purchase of a new meter, because that should be the city's responsibility,

* Customer Profile -- The first profile pulled at the Utilities Office is done at no charge, a $2 charge will be added to the monthly bill for every profile pulled after the initial one, and

* Service Charge -- An increase from $15-$20 due to the increased price of fuel.

The board decided it would research each request to find out if an ordinance is needed, and how it needs to be drawn up by City Attorney Traci Lawson.

Meanwhile, the board decided to move the meeting start time to 10 a.m., to accommodate offices that send payments.

The board will still meet on its normal days, which are the second and fourth Wednesday of each month.
