Council to consider allocation change this week
By Cindy Barks | The Daily Courier
A move that reportedly would bring Prescott’s water allocations for new residential development more in line with actual usage could get city approval this week.
Among the items on the 3:02 p.m. voting session will be a resolution that would change the city’s alternative water allocation policy, reducing the amount of water needed to be allocated for new homes.
A city memo points out that since 2000, the city has allocated 0.35 acre-foot of alternative water for each new single-family home, and 0.25 per multi-family unit.
