Albany --  The city commission is considering adopting an ordinance that would make water restrictions in Albany the same as state restrictions. Whatever changes the state makes, the city would make.

Mayor Pro Tem Bob Langstaff says the state restrictions are tough enough. "What it would do would be to track exactly what the state restrictions are and impose penalties, and so when the state says, 'we're no longer in a level one drought' and we have lower water restrictions, the city would also have lower water restrictions."

Commissioners have agreed to look over the proposed ordinance and vote at a later meeting.

For a first violation, the offender will be warned, a second violation would result in a $200 fine and water cut off. Subsequent fines would be determined by tapping fees.
