Deciding not to follow other cities in passing a ban on pseudoephedrine sales, the Nixa Board of Aldermen has said no to requiring a doctor's order. Leaders heard from a pharmacist who said a better way to handle the problem would be reducing the amount that can be sold legally, The request came from the city administrator who thinks meth makers may be coming to Nixa to buy product because of limits in other areas that include Taney County.
Aldermen also heard from the public works director who wants to give the city administrator power to impose limits on water use. Doug Colvin tells KTTS News, the utility is struggling to keep up the demand for around four million gallons a day when use during the winter months is around one million gallons. He says most of the current increase comes from unmonitored use like watering lawns.
