Better late than never. That seems to be what underlies impending action by the Barrow County Board of Commissioners to adopt a county storm water ordinance tonight (March 22) after officials discovered the county didn't have an ordinance. The only public hearing on the proposed ordinance will be at 6 p.m. tonight in the BOC meeting room.
But the lack of that detail hasn't stopped the county from collecting over $1.2 million in fees over the last two years.
The proposed ordinance was distributed to the media and to a few other people on Friday, March 18, but it has never been presented or discussed at a public meeting.
