Cass Supervisors to vote on illegal dumping ordinance


June 12th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Cass County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing during their meeting Wednesday morning in Atlantic, on a proposed Illegal Dumping Ordinance. The ordinance, if adopted after the second reading, calls 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. A vote on approving the 1st reading will follow the hearing. A second public hearing on the matter will take place June 20th.
