City Council Brief
The Aug. 1 meeting of the Glasgow City Council saw the passage of Ordinance 952, restricting the number of pets in area homes to three dogs or three cats, with grandfather provisions for households containing animals currently in excess of the maximum number of pets. Members of the community instrumental in finalizing the details of the ordinance were in attendance, but remained silent during public comment periods. Mayor Erickson thanked the community for their input and support.
Early in the meeting, the council also passed incremental increases to existing water and sewer rates, again without comment from the public during the discussion period of the hearing. At the close of the meeting, additional comments from the public were entered into the record. The total increase to monthly base rates will reach six dollars over a full six-year period.
Old business pertaining to the Levee Safety Committee, which meets again on Aug. 12, was briefly discussed, along with ongoing discussions about the proposed Valley Court apartment acquisition (no change), and an update regarding water and de-annexation issues brought to the council by Jarett Brandt of Big Sky Auto Accessories.
