People who make false reports using Woodward’s emergency 911 system or who make excessive non-emergency calls on the system could end up facing criminal charges.

An ordinance establishing penalties for those actions is on Monday’s city commission agenda. The commission meets at 7 p.m. in city hall.

The ordinance will establish the offenses of “false reporting and excessive non-emergency use of the nine-one-one (911) system,” according to the agenda. Fines for false reporting could reach as high as $500 and $100 for excessive use, according to information in the agenda packet.

Commissioners are expected to discuss and vote on the proposed ordinance Monday.

Two public hearings are planned, the first to review the draft document for the Community Development Block Grant Capital Improvements Plan and the other on a request to annex and rezone a 10-acre tract of land west of High Plains Technology Center where the owner wants to build a dance studio.

Various other agreements are also on the agenda,
