MUNDAY— The Munday City Council heard the third reading and approved an ordinance that regulates off-street parking within front yards of residences within the city during its regular monthly meeting last week.
A copy of the new ordinance will be posted on the city’s Facebook page and can be obtained by contacting city hall.
Violations could result in fines of up to $200.
City Manager David Trevino reminded residents that this ordinance along with ones related to enforce junked vehicles and high grass/weeds will be enforced. “I encourage the residents to keep up with their yards and lots from all the rain we have received,” he added.
The council also decided that the city would not turn off water due to late water payments.
“Residents that are having a hardship due to layoff can contact City Hall for payment arrangements,” said Trevino.
The council heard an update from Travis Floyd of the Munday Economic Development Board about finding ways to help out the local businesses by suspending rental/ lease payments for 90 days and by developing a local business stimulus package to help out with lost revenue. The EDC A board will finalize the application and process.
It was announced that the water meter grant from the Texas Department of Agriculture will be delayed because of the COVID-19 crisis. “It now looks like it will not come into fruition until August or September,” said Trevino.
No action was taken on the placement of a billboard on the 100 block of Jean Street currently owned by Baize Storage because the company decided not to follow through with the project.
The council also formally approved moving the city election to Nov. 3.
