HAILEY, Idaho (AP) — The Hailey City Council in central Idaho is considering holding private property owners financially responsible for frozen pipes on both city property and private property. Officials say only residents can run water through pipes to prevent them from freezing during cold winter snaps, and that some residents don’t have pipes buried deep enough to prevent freezing.

But some residents say the city-owned water lines aren’t buried deep enough. The city spent $5,500 sending city work crews to 42 cases of frozen water lines last winter, but only 18 were on city property. The Idaho Mountain Express reports (http://bit.ly/16sihGu) that the city council plans to hold a public meeting April 15 to discuss a draft version of the ordinance.
