Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
6-20-05 - Ardmore residents will soon have to pay more for their water. Ardmore City Commissioners approved a water rate increase for the second time in a year on Monday night.
Last June they increased water bills to help pay for the new water and waste water treatment facilities. But residents haven't been using as much water which means less profits for the city. That's why the water department asked for the latest hike. It will raise residential rates for water by 7% and by 8% for sewer.
The city will also charge a$5 flat rate surcharge fee for each residential utility used. The increases will only last three years, but the flat rate could stay on the bill for twenty years.
