City Manager David Aldrich said in order to keep the city's creeks at a state mandated stream flow, the city has been using water from the city's reservoir. He said the reservoir is beginning to run low. "The creek reached a low- flow threshold about five weeks ago," Aldrich stated," which then required the city to supplement Blue Creek with water from the reser- voir, under the state's "7-Q- 10" plan." Aldrich said this has made a big impact on the reservoir and "we have real- ly been seeing the level drop a lot faster." The council voted unani- Stage" or ban," which would prohibit all outdoor watering. The water ban is expect- ed to cut down on city-wide water use by 25 to 30 percent. The ban was oriy an odd-even system where res- idents first would be warned an then a fine ff found in vio- lation. A third infraction would be to discon- nect servic- es. Aldrich said the city, if need be, could pro- hibit all out- side water Aldrich use including commercial businesses such as car wash- es. In other business, the council approved an electric service ordinance that set fees for running under- ground electric service. The plan was modified from its first public reading, eliminating a clause that would allow the city to file a lien against the home if the utility bills were 60 days late. Councilman Charlie F. Martin said it would be unfair for a tenant to run up a bill and take off without paying, leaving the landowner City Attorney Dan Lee said the theory behind includ- ing the clause was to have the landlords "share some of the burdens with the city" to make sure the utility bills were paid. The council set a public hearing for 6:45 p.m. on October 7 for Mike's Elite pouring license application. sy m/Babw THE TRIANGLE - Four of Callaway's cheerleaders prepare for the game with the Grangers before the kickoff last Friday.

On Wednesday, September 4, at 10:00 a.m., UGA confirmed that the bird was infected with the West Nile Virus. "I announced the results to our seniors during lunch on Wednesday," Wooten said. "I also instructed them to use insect repel- lents any time they are outdoors." The Senior Center currently has no scheduled outdoor activities that would be interrupted to the discov- ery, according to Wooten. Parks and Recreation Director Tod Tentler said to other dead birds were found recently at Shuford Fields Softball Complex, located CAUTION- Moving water in land- scaping pools such as this one is less likely to have mosq, but persons in the woods should be war,,, around any slow-moving creek, pond or swamp, near the Senior Center. "Unfortunately, the birds had decayed beyond the point of possi- ble testing," Tentler said. As a precautionary measure, Tentler said the Parks and Recreation Commission has taken the following actions. "We have notified the City of LaGrange and asked that all areas where water naturally collects in the vicinity of the Senior Center and Shuford Fields be sprayed with insecticide. We have also advised our parks maintenance crews and Troup Transit drivers to use insect repellant while conducting their duties outdoors." LaGrange Academy and LaGrange High School currently use the Shuford Fields complex for practice and regular season softball games. "We have contacted both schools and advised them of the situation," Tentler said. "We do not know, nor can the Health Department confirm, that the dead bird found at the Senior Center was infected loc.ally. It could have contracted the virus elsewhere and simply died here. Nevertheless, we felt it appropriate to take these precautions for the safety and healthof our employees and the gen- eral public."
