The Banks city council voted to extend the city’s development moratorium, adopted a work plan for the 2021- 2022 fiscal year, and adopted a number of more routine items at the city council meeting held March 9. 

The city of Banks development moratorium will continue after councilors voted to extend it another six months, the fourth such extension. The Banks city council originally adopted the moratorium, which restricts most new development in the city in the face of a dwindling and faulty water supply, on December 11, 2018. While measures are in place to reduce water and replace the main water transmission line, that project is not expected to be complete until 2022.
