An amendment to a Wellman City ordinance will help save some property owners money. During a public hearing at the last City Council meeting, the first reading of an amendment regarding the regulation of private wells within City limits was held.
With this alteration, residents wanting to drill a water well will now need Council approval first.
City Administrator Nick Pacha adds that the ordinance will help the owners of former gas stations. The ordinance will remove the need for costly EPA testing on the properties’ test wells that are done yearly.
