Iowa Park Talks Future Drought Contingency Plan

Iowa Park Talks Future Drought Contingency Plan

The drought contingency plan for Iowa Park was the topic of discussion Monday night.

City officials addressed the public saying the city would engage in drought warning similar to Wichita Falls.

Officials also said they plan to enact similar water restrictions that are permanent rather than temporary.

City Manager Michael Price thinks this is a step in the right direction.

"It's going be a successful tool for us for to use when we go back through this again. Instead of in acting temporary restrictions we'll be able to follow what Wichita Falls has done and say we're in stage three, we're in stage four, we're in emergency drought conditions, and enact those a bit quicker than what we've done in the past," Price said.

Although public input was allowed Monday night no public comments were made about the contingency plan.
