Holliday Special Session- Moving to Stage 4

Posted: Updated:

         The town of Holliday officially moved into stage 4, Drought Disaster, water restrictions.  However, not one single Holliday resident was present for tonight's special session. Moving into Stage 4 was not the only action that the city took at tonight's special session; they also made amendments to Chapter 13, Article 13.700 Emergency Water Rationing. The ordinance had previously stated that Holliday would not allow bulk water sales; the council took action to change that ordinance allowing bulk residential usage of up to 7,000 gallons of water. Those who do use over 7,000 gallons of water must sign a form that they are using their water for residential use only. There will also be a $7.00 surcharge to those who use more than 13,000 gallons. Residents will be allowed to use soakers on their foundation from 8 p.m. until midnight. These changes won't go into effect until the next bill period in December; residents will notice the change to their bills in January.
