The Madison City Commission will hear the second reading of changes to a municipal prohibited-waste ordinance dealing with sump-pump outflows when it meets at 5:30 p.m. on Monday at City Hall.

The changes to the ordinance will instruct property owners to direct the outflows of their sump pumps to the storm-sewer system, city streets or other appropriate outdoor site -- not the city’s sanitary-sewer system -- between April 1 and Oct. 31 each year. Without the switch to outdoor outflows, Madison’s sanitary-sewer system can become overloaded with water.

After the second reading of the amended ordinance, city officials will hold a swearing-in ceremony for Marshall Dennert as mayor.

In other business, the city commissioners will consider:

-- Acknowledging a drinking water certificate of achievement award.

-- Acknowledging a letter of agreement with First District Association of Local Governments for an update to Madison’s comprehensive land-use plan.

-- Authorizing the mayor to sign a cooperative fire suppression agreement with the Wildland Fire Division of the state Department of Agriculture.

-- Authorizing the mayor to sign a services agreement with RSArchitects for phase 1 of a new police station.

-- Authorizing the mayor to sign a task order having DGR Engineering review the potential power demands from a proposed Tru Shrimp plant in Madison and the capabilities of the city’s electrical infrastructure.

-- Adopting a resolution that outlines the power and duties of the mayor and city commissioners for the next 12 months.
