City Attorney Kent Richins spoke to the Worland City Council about confusion surrounding the Snow Removal Ordinance that was up for a second reading on Tuesday Evening.
After February’s first meeting — both Richins and Director of Public Works Brian Burky got a number of calls about the potential impacts of the ordinance. One of the sticking points for residents expected to be impacted by the ordinance was how they would get an exception. Initially Richins drafted language that would require addressing the City Council. That was changed — residents will now be able to go directly to Public Works Director Brian Burky for approval. The fine structure was also brought in line with the City of Worland’s general penalty clause — which means violators could incur up to a $750 fine. The amendments and second reading were both passed unanimously — Mike Neufer and Melissa Rivera were absent — but excused.
