BAXTER CITY COUNCIL: Baxter to consider major building policy change


BAXTER — The Baxter City Council on Tuesday will be considering a proposal to amend city ordinances to allow building homes on vacant lots of record to be built with septic systems and water wells. 

The proposal, if approved by the council, would only be allowed where city services currently are not available. Projects may still be initiated by a petition of 75 percent of landowners in a project area.
