City commission moves meeting to Tuesday





The Hays City Commission will meet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at city hall for its work session because it was rescheduled to avoid conflicting with the Hays Area Chamber of Commerce's annual banquet Thursday.

Commissioners will discuss an agreement with a developer to extend the water main along 41st Street because of proposed construction in the area, according to the meeting's agenda. The city would pay an estimated $17,800 of the $85,000 project.

Other business on the docket:

* Commissioners will discuss current regulations regarding portable shipping containers.

* The commission will explore the ordinance concerning inoperable vehicles at auto-repair businesses. The requirement was the chief subject of the Jan. 16 work session after Chris Miller, owner of Auto Tech in Hays, was cited for having inoperable vehicles at two of his work properties.

* Water availability will be on the docket. If approved, the city has a 12-year, $65-million plan to use the R9 Ranch in Edwards County for its water supply. The city has $27 million available now to begin the project.
