Monrovia Council: Water Restrictions; Truck Restrictions; Solar Un-Restrictions; Etc.

At its regular meeting on July 21 (agenda: ) the Monrovia City Council will, among other things, consider ...

~ More restrictions on the use of drinking water, including (for Phase I, what we are in now) limiting watering no more than 15 minutes per watering day, plus new restrictions on overwatering, over-spray, watering during wind or after rain, and use of water on permeable surfaces. For Phase II, spray irrigation would be limited to "not more than every fourth day, essentially once each week."

~ Limit the weight of trucks to minimize damage to city streets. "The use of all streets within the city is prohibited by any vehicle exceeding a gross weight of 6,000 pounds, except upon the truck routes specified in Section 10.24.010(B). A vehicle in excess of 6,000 pounds up to a maximum of 14,000 pounds, including its load, may utilize the streets and portions of streets designated as truck routes."

~ A new rule to make it quicker to install small rooftop residential solar systems. "The Building and Safety Division shall issue a building permit or other non-discretionary permit within 3 business days following receipt of a completed application." More streamlining as well. Comment: Sounds pretty good.

~ A new compensation agreement with employee groups.
