LAMPASAS - Kempner Water Supply Corporation notified Lampasas of planned water tank maintenance, prompting the city council to plan a two-week Stage 3 mandatory water conservation measure starting Nov. 8.

KWSC will drain and clean the Ivy Mountain and Highway 195 tanks. The Ivy Mountain tank is the most crucial tank to Lampasas, City Manager Michael Stoldt told the council.

During the water conservation measure, residents will be prohibited from all outdoor washing, including car, pavement and window washing. Lawn and garden irrigation will also be restricted as well as the filling, re-filling or adding water to swimming pools. The restrictions will be lifted when the water storage tanks are back in service.

In other business, Stoldt asked the council members to take note of the number of portable signs he said he's go up in the city.

"I'm to the point where we need to change that (ordinance) or I need to take action," he said. "This is not the same council who approved the sign ordinance. I wanted to give you a heads up to take note of what's around."

Councilman John Cole suggested that pictures of the portable signs be taken and presented to the council to clarify what a portable sign is.

The council unanimously approved Murphy's USA Lampasas branch to supply the city's diesel and gas. Texas Fleet Fuel, the Shell station on North Key Avenue, also placed a bid but was higher than Murphy's. Murphy's quoted regular unleaded at $2.25 a gallon; premium unleaded at $2.50 a gallon and diesel at $2.49 a gallon. The bids were based on a Sept. 20 example bid.

The council unanimously voted to approve the first reading of an ordinance to change the zoning of 2200 U.S. Highway 281 South from agriculture to retail.
