Members of the Palmyra City Council approved three ordinances and set a special meeting to discuss the city's upcoming storm water plan during their regular session Thursday, July 20.

City Attorney Chase Hickman delivered the second reading of each of three bills to the council members — one dealing with the height of grass or other vegetation and a required permit for baling it into hay, one adding goats to the existing ordinance regarding livestock kept within city limits and a third bill dealing with regulations and fines pertaining to condominiums. All three bills were adopted as city ordinances by the council.

Council members will gather for a special meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 31, to discuss the citywide storm water plan developed with Klingner and Associates. City officials and representatives from Klingner and Associates previously held a public forum to discuss the topic and identify specific problem areas in town Wednesday, May 3.
