News : Princeton begins water restrictions
Posted by John on 2012/7/26 7:40:00 (433 reads) News by the same author

The Princeton City Council has enacted an ordinance banning the public use of water for lawns, gardens, and private washing of motor vehicles at Princeton. The water restrictions were put into effect immediately for the city of Princeton due to on-going drought and water levels getting lower in the city wells.


The Princeton council last night also adopted a curfew for youth under age 16, approved a building inspector for downtown properties facing potential demolition, and selected a Kansas City company for work at the waste water treatment plant.

As reported earlier following a council meeting, the curfew for minors at Princeton will be in effect from 10 o'clock at night until 5 o'clock in the morning; seven days a week. Exceptions are allowed for school related activities. The curfew was enacted because of vandalism and other mischief that law enforcement says has been occurring. For minors breaking curfew and apprehended, the ordinance says they are to be released to their parents or legal guardian. The adults also could be subject to a fine for the alleged violation of the curfew.

Two and possibly three vacant buildings on the west side of the Princeton square are cordoned off due to safety concerns for the public. The owner is described as being from out-of-state. A hearing was held last night by the Princeton Council with no one representing the owner. The council employed Jim Linville as the building inspector for this project while it determines the next steps to take. The Princeton Council also updated its dangerous building ordinance.

Among other business, the council approved a working agreement with the Larkin Group of Kansas City to begin a project involving the chlorination and de-clorinization at the waste water treatment plant. This is among steps to meet D-N-R requirements.
