County News_logoWith no comments during the public hearing on Monday, the Marshall County Commissioners passed on second and third reading an ordinance reaffirming the establishment of an Ordinance Violation Bureau in the Clerk’s Office.

This will permit the Sheriff’s Department to enforce a number of local ordinances through the Violations Bureau.  Many of the local ordinances that the Sheriff wants his officer to enforce include abandon vehicles, animals running at large, ATV use, the county’s buggy ordinance, curfew ordinance, golf cart violations and registrations, open burning, smoking tobacco violations and travel on county roads during  declared emergencies.

After approval of the ordinance, it will be published and 30 days later go into effect.
