Public Hearing: Liquid Discharge Ordinance

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

SELECT BOARD

TOWN OF ROLLINSFORD

Town Hall

Repeal: Ordinance: Surface Water: Drainage (passed in 1973)
Promulgate: Ordinance 15.01: Safety of Public Ways: Liquid Discharge

The Select Board has been reviewing the issue of liquid discharge over the past year and brought forth an ordinance for public hearing and review. Before taking action on the proposed ordinance, the Select Board became aware of the ordinance on surface water that was passed in 1973. The Select Board finds the 1973 ordinance to be inadequate and now proposes to repeal the 1973 ordinance and replace it with an ordinance similar to the one it proposed in 2014. The proposed ordinance encompasses all liquids, not just water, and its penalties and process are in line with other ordinance penalties.
