Council will give second reading to an ordinance amending the city code in regards to sewer regulations. The primary changes deal with parameters for restricted discharged, specifically total phosphorous, which are limited to a maximum of 6.0 milligrams per liter per day. Any discharge larger than that would require a surcharge, according to state requirements. The amendment would set the billing rate for total phosphorous in excess of 6 milligrams per liter per day at the current cost of the chemical used to remove the excess total phosphorous.
On Sept. 18, council voted 5-1, with Councilman Ronnie Carter dissenting and Councilman Larry Thacker abstaining (Council members Evelyn Farmer and Doug Hughes were absent), to give first reading to the ordinance.
Council also will consider a resolution honoring Bridgett Allen, city police dispatcher for her award as 2007 Telecommunicator of the Year in the State of Kentucky.
Sherri Mosley, executive director of London’s Downtown Main Street Program, will make a presentation before council which will be expanded for the Community Development Committee which will meet following council’s usually brief session.
