Right to a hearing for water users
November 16, 2022
By Kelly Costa
During Monday night’s city council meeting, the council waived the first reading and approved an ordinance amending Chapter 38, Article 2, Section (I) (1) of the city of Staunton Revised Code of Ordinances. This ordinance pertains to delinquent water bill accounts and affords the water user the right to a hearing, if the water user exercises his right to a hearing within three days of the date of service noted on the water shut off notice. If the delinquent user fails to demand a hearing within the three days, then water service will be shut off and terminated.
