Rio Dell special meeting; New city manager and Penalties for high water use
RIO DELL- The City of Rio Dell will introduce the new City Manager at Tuesday's special council meeting, there they will discuss adopting a fine for residents who use excessive amounts of water.
The proposal would force residents to pay a fine each time they go over their 50 gallon-a-day limit. If residents exceed their allowance for the month they will be charged double then charged more for the more they use.
City staff believe the penalty will detour residents from using too much water.
