The Kalama City Council may discuss the new police station at its Wednesday meeting because a letter by resident Tanaja Gravina asserting citizens' right to petition by initiative is listed on the meeting agenda.

In her letter, Gravina requested that her findings be addressed at the meeting, and the city has placed the letter under correspondence. 

The city will also host a public hearing on fees associated with 8-inch water meters and high-strength wastewater flows. The charges would apply to commercial customers, not residential homes.

The city has received a request from Steelscape to install a new 8-inch water meter, for which base rates do not yet exist.

The large meter would also increase costs to treat high-strength wastewater flows. The city has therefore asked engineers to recommend surcharges to offset additional wastewater treatment.

The hearing will address both the city's water and sewer codes. Afterwards, the council will vote on two related ordinances.

The council meets 7 p.m. Wednesday in the council chambers, 320 N First St.
