There will be a meeting January 25th at 10:00 a.m. in the Community Meeting Room of the Leelanau County Government Building regarding septic regulations.
John Popa from the Leelanau Road commission met with the Health Department Board last spring to recommend changes to the requirements by the Health Department that permit drainfields. In the past, mound systems in drainfields were not permitted. Then the regulations changed and two foot mounds were allowed if your house was built before a certain date. Mr Popa feels this change was arbitrary and capricious. The Health Department Board asked that Bill Crawford take a look at the regulations and see what could be done. Mr. Popa called Bill Crawford last fall and was told that he would like to revisit the regulations but would like more public input on the subject of permitting mounds.
Please tell your friends and neighbors about this important meeting.
