May 31st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Cass County Board of Supervisors, Thursday, set June 13th and 20th as the dates for public hearings, and the 1st and 2nd readings of a proposed Illegal Dumping Ordinance. The ordinance, if adopted after the second reading, would apply to all the unincorporated areas of the County, and would call for a $100 fine on the 1st offense if the items illegally dumped weighed less than 10-pounds, or up to 15-cubic feet in volume, and up to $250 for the second and subsequent offenses. The fines increase from $250 to $500 respectively, for trash that exceeds 10-pounds, or 15-cubic feet in volume.
