Vernon City Council Meeting

Posted: Updated:
Vernon City Council members discussed the drought on Tuesday night at their meeting.

There was a public hearing about the drought contingency and water conservation plan. 

Vernon declared an emergency in order to speed up the city's legislative process that will allow drilling of a new water well in the city.
Vernon city officials sent a test pump down a well in the Goss Well Field, but it failed to produce enough water.  This is why the city is going to have to find another location for a well.

On Tuesday night they all motions were passed meaning the city can waive bidding requirements to develop the new well.
