In reports to the Abilene City Commission Monday, City Manager David Dillner told commissioners about the city’s well levels.
Dillner said that because of a lack of rain, the wells are now at the level they are usually at in July and August. He said staff will continue to monitor the water levels and to keep residents informed.
The meeting was short, even with an executive session. No action was taken after commissioners returned.
In action, the commission:
• passed a resolution endorsing the federal tax exempt status of municipal bonds;
• established compensation for the mayor at $250 per month, and city commissioners at $200 per month.
• approved the rezoning of the Central Park Addition from an “R-3 General Residential District to a “B-3” Highway Commercial District. The rezoning will allow expansion of the business owned by Don and Betty Nebelsick, Don’s Tire. It was previously approved by the planning commission on Jan. 8.
• signed a proclamation for Catholic Schools Week for Jan. 27 through Feb. 2. Students of St. Andrew’s School joined the commissioners.
