Lander City Council to tackle old ordinances and approve contract for community center design

By Joshua Scheer, reporter,

(Lander, Wyo.) – Lander City Council will consider eliminating two existing ordinances in this week’s regular meeting.

The meeting is at 6 p.m. on Tuesday at Lander City Hall.

Ordinance’s on the chopping block are 7-8-1 (Leaving Child Unattended) and 8-6-3 (Bicycle Registration Required). Both were discussed the week before during an work session, and a consensus seemed to be the two laws, which aren’t readily enforced, should be eliminated. Councilor Monte Richardson was not in attendance. To read about the work session discussion, see this story.

Revoking the ordinances will require three readings. Tuesday will be the first.

Additionally, the ordinance governing how delinquent water bill charges are dealt with is slated to be amended. It was also discussed during last week’s work session. City bills are considered delinquent 20 days after the billing date. The change eliminates the use of certified mail or delivery by a police officer for a notice. The notice will now be sent via U.S. Postal Service and posting the notice on the property. Ten days after notice is served, the city may shut off the water. This change will require three readings as well.

The city’s contract with Plan One Architects for the design of the new community service is the only item under new business. A resident is also scheduled to discuss a water/sewer bill dispute.
