The Lula City Council is considering amendments to various city ordinances, including the sewer use ordinance. The proposed changes were discussed at a work session Monday night and will be on the agenda for a vote at the regular council meeting, set for 7 p.m. on Monday, July 15, at city hall.
City staff is recommending some definitions be added to the current ordinance, in addition to regulations requiring any customer out of compliance with the regulations be charged one and a half times the monthly fee for three months for the first violation and two times the average monthly fee for three months for the second violation. For the third violation, the customer would be charged three times the monthly fee for three months and service will be cancelled until the violation is corrected.
Other proposed amendments include changes to the zoning ordinance to address the duration of yard sales. The current regulations define the frequency of yard sales to limit property owners to no more than five such yard sales in a calendar year, but does not address the duration of yard sales. Another ordinance amendment under consideration will address how fats, oils and grease are disposed of by various city businesses.
These proposed ordinance changes will be on the agenda for a vote at the July 15 council meeting.
