Clearmont Council Discusses Utilities/Flood Ordinances

Clearmont town council members will give first reading to a flood prevention ordinance and second reading to an ordinance setting utility rates when they meet tonight, Monday, Nov. 18.

The meeting will start at 6 at the Town Hall. Council members will also consider a GPS utility mapping proposal – one of the projects the town will fund with its share of the 1-cent capital facility tax revenues approved last month by Sheridan County voters.

Clearmont officials expect to receive up to $560,000 as its share of the renewed capital facilities tax. They propose spending $45,000 for an immediate project to map the town's utilities using Global Positioning System technology. The entire cost of the project will be funded by cap tax revenues.

Also scheduled for 2013/2014 is a project to replace valve boxes and gutters throughout the town. That project is expected to cost $18,000 and is also expected to be financed 100 percent by the capital facilities tax.

Other items on the agenda include auditing and accounting proposals, approval of the town's bills, and reports from the mayor, council and town clerk.
