City discusses water conservation plan
The Sabetha City Commission met at 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 26, at Sabetha City Hall. Present for the meeting were Mayor Cody Bletscher, Commissioners Norm Schmitt, Nick Aberle, Maridel Wittmer and Julie Burenheide, City Administrator Doug Allen, City Clerk Steve Compo, and Assistant City Attorney Luke Sunderland. Guests present were Jason Enneking and Megan Bunck.
The commissioners discussed the updated water conservation plan. Allen said this plan was updated with the correct names and telephone numbers.
“That was the only change we made,” Allen said. “This is your drought thing. If there is ever a drought case, what percentage we start shutting it off, and what the rules and regulations are. It’s kind of something the State [of Kansas] has handed to us and drew it up for us. If we ever have to go into water rationing, this is what we will do and how we will handle it.”
After more discussion, the commissioners approved the water conservation plan.
