2017 Proposed Utility Code Changes
Ordinance No. 553
Ordinance No. 553 will amend Title 13, Chapter 13.04 – Water Service System, Chapter 13.08 Sewer Service System, and Chapter 13.12 Rates Billing and Collection of the Lovington Municipal Code. The amendments define policy and procedures for utility services so that all of our customers are treated consistently and the policy and procedures are easily understood. In addition, rate increases for water, sewer, and garbage services are included. Rate increases are necessary to ensure that repair and replacement for City utilities are conducted as well as ensuring minimum reserve levels as required by the existing loans implemented in 2007 for water system and wastewater treatment plant improvements.
