Jerome to discuss two draft ordinances

May consider generating electricity at town's springs

JEROME - The Town Council may adopt Ordinance 382 to regulate fireworks when it meets in regular session Tuesday at 7 p.m. This will be the second reading of the proposed ordinance, and it will make changes and add provisions to the town code to prohibit the use of fireworks within the town limits.

A draft ordinance on residential parking restrictions is on the agenda for discussion only. The council will discuss and review the ordinance that would establish parking regulations in residential zones and also create a municipal parking bureau.

Another draft ordinance is on the agenda also for discussion only. That draft ordinance would address multiple-family dwellings. The ordinance would establish a means for multiple-family dwellings in residential areas to obtain legal non-conforming use permits or conditional use permits.

Under new business, the council will consider issuing a request for proposals for a feasibility study regarding generation of electricity from the town's springs. The hydrology study would be funded by a grant from the Arizona Department of Commerce.

The council meets in chambers at the Jerome Civic Center at 600 Clark St.
