DYER | The Town Council has tweaked the portion of Dyer ordinance governing water shut-offs.

The council approved an ordinance change which establishes the process of water shut-off and provides for an administrative appeal.

“When (the shut-off process) reaches that point, we’ve got to give (the customer) a notice of a hearing,” Town Attorney Bill Enslen said.

The change was made to protect the town from litigation.

Another Indiana community was sued over a due process hearing, Enslen has said.

Testimony will have to be provided by the clerk-treasurer’s office at a hearing, Enslen said.

Town residents pay their water bills through the clerk-treasurer’s office. Munster’s ordinance provides a hearing process. The town was involved in one hearing last year.
