PALMDALE — The City Council will conduct a public hearing on a proposed ordinance to amend the city’s municipal code to keep the city in compliance to state law as it relates to septic tanks.
The proposed ordinance will revise the city’s municipal code to adopt the county’s ordinance for septic tanks in response to new septic tank policies by the State Water Resources Control Board.
The council also will consider a memorandum of understanding between the city and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health that would allow the city to turn over its septic system inspections to the county.
“It should allow us to expand the use of septic in some of the areas of the city that aren’t served by sewer,” City Manager James Purtee said.
The council will meet at 7 p.m. today in council chambers at City Hall, 38300 Sierra Highway.
