Beginning Friday, municipal water customers will be forced to cut back their outdoor water use yet again to make way for an overall 20 percent decrease in deliveries by the Colorado River Municipal Water District.
The Big Spring City Council approved the revision to its current Drought Contingency Plan — which is currently in Stage 3 — by a unanimous vote to decrease the number of days city water customers can water lawns and utilize water for outdoor activities and usages from three days each week to two days.
Big Spring Independent School District officials hope to put the final touches on plans for new single-member district boundaries Thursday.
BSISD's Redistricting Advisory Committee will meet at 3:30 p.m. Thursday to hammer out final recommendations for the new boundaries, then will present those findings to the board of trustees when that body meets in special session at 5:15 p.m.
Both meetings will be held in the Big Spring High School board room. The public is invited to provide input at both meetings.
