The Manager’s Report states “The intention of this memo is to go through the history of the Septic Tank Revitalization Program as it pertains to Devils Lake Water Improvement District and then discuss the “preliminary position paper on a possible program to regulate septic tanks tributary to Devils Lake,” that will be presented at the January 11, City Council Meeting.” I spoke to the City Recorder today (January 4th) and she verified that the proposed septic ordinance will be on the January 11th agenda as a discussion item.
