Second round of hearings on septic tank ordinance planned
Ordinance 61, which changes regulations on septic tanks, is being rewritten, but the second round of public hearings already are scheduled.
The initial public hearings and outcry from them, helped the Jasper County Board of Supervisors and Jasper County Sanitarian Kevin Luetters decide to revamp the original plan.
The original plan had provisions in it that would require a $50 dollar distributor box permit to repair a malfunctioning distributor box. It also would require property owners whose property line was within 200 feet a rural sewer line to tap into that line instead of using a septic tank. It would also have made having a license a requirement to install a septic tank.
