HANFORD — The Hanford City Council will meet Tuesday to discuss the emergency repair of one of the city’s wells.
During the meeting, the Council has three items to discuss under general business, including the emergency repair of Well No. 50 in the city. A staff report for this item states the water in the well is testing above the maximum arsenic level of 10 parts per billion and attempts to bring the levels down have failed.
Staff is recommending the Council expedite the process in order to get the well fixed quickly to ensure adequate and quality water for residents.
Council will also discuss designating Hanford Fire stations as “safe surrender sites,” where someone can safely and confidentially surrender a baby at the station within 72 hours of the baby’s birth.
There will also be a public hearing to approve grant funding for the Hanford Police Department, which will then be used to purchase electronic ticket writers and red light indicators.
