City’s sewer billing charge to change

CLINTON — The Clinton City Council will consider alterations to sewer bills and the animal control ordinance during its meeting Tuesday.  

The Council will consider a change to the sewer ordinance altering the minimum billable volume for sewer customers to one unit, or 100 cubic feet, per month. The minimum per quarter would be altered to three units, 300 cubic feet, per quarter.  

The ordinance also will add a new section that states sewer users who are not customers of Iowa American Water and do not have a meter for water usage will be billed a minimum usage of 8 units, 800 cubic feet, per month or 24 units, 2,400 cubic feet, per quarter.  

If approved, these changes will be effective Jan. 1.  

The Council also will vote on adopting the new animal control ordinance, which has been bouncing between committees and the Council since July.  

When the ordinance first appeared at the committee level, concerns were raised over the section that limited the number of cats or dogs a person could own to 10. The new ordinance does not dictate the amount of animals a person can own.  Rather, it states the person shall not harbor or maintain a number of animals that creates unhealthy or unsanitary conditions for the human or the animals.  

The ordinance also contains changes to other procedures and fees.  

The Council will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall.
