A resolution passed Tuesday by the Pulaski Board of Mayor and Alderman to resume utility cutoffs due to nonpayment.
The utility cutoffs due to nonpayment will become effective upon the next billing cycle.
City Administrator Terry Harrison said utility revenues are decreasing, and resuming cutoffs will prevent a rate increase for all paying customers.
Board members emphasized that those facing cutoffs should contact the utility department to arrange a payment plan.
The board also passed an ordinance, on first reading, to annex a Gordon Street property into the city for subdivision development.
Alderman Hardin Franklin raised concerns about the property location and its potential for flood hazards and therefore abstained from voting.
The board told Franklin that the planning commission would deal with potential flooding risks and the city will have the chance to approve or not approve the plans before any construction begins.
A public hearing on the issue is set for Tuesday, July 14th at 12:05 p.m.
The board also approved a parade permit for The Growing Tree Nursery School, on July 23rd.
