Livingston to hold special council meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday--water rates on agenda

March 1, 2010 

LIVINGSTON -- The regular Tuesday meeting of the Livingston City Council has been canceled. The council will instead hold a special meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Items on the agenda for discussion are an update on water and wastewater rates and consideration of an ordinance establishing a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries.

The water rate update probably stems from the recent decision by a Merced County Superior Court judge that Livingston's controversial water rate system is unconstitutional. The judge demanded the city halt the implementation of its water rate increases.

The meeting will be held in the council chambers, 1416 C St.
