AUDUBON — Audubon residents are getting closer to monthly water bills instead of quarterly billing when the Audubon City Council meets tonight. The council is expected to consider the third and final reading of Ordinance 751 which changes water rates and billing structure.
The council will meet at 5:30 p.m. via Zoom.
The council has been moving towards monthly billing, which would help residents by making payment sizes smaller, and would make it easier for the city to spot larger than normal use, which could indicate a leak, and stop it in a more timely fashion. The first two readings have passed and the council will hold a vote on the final reading tonight.
The council will also hold a public hearing on the Bank Lofts Upper Story Housing Pilot Project — a project designed to increase housing opportunities in Audubon by adding apartments in a downtown building. The building is located at 302 Broadway.
The agenda also includes a possible discussion on designating property as historical and considering changing parking restrictions around the uptown square.
New business includes a mowing contract and cemetery sexton contract; a fee schedule for information requests and a resolution regarding volunteer firefighters.
