It only took a week to have an ad in
the paper stating the
P&Z will take up the issue of the Special
On October 28, 2010 beginning at 7:00 pm
in the County
building, the Planning & Zoning
Board will hold a public hearing for review and consideration to accept
27-Special Event Permit Ordinance-
to be added to the Jasper County Code of Ordinances.
As TWG reported recently,
this is something which was
brought before the BOC without them having asked for such an ordinance. District 4 commissioner asked how this
proposal was initiated and was told that it is something proposed by
Enforcement Officer. This ordinance
basically states that if any event is held which will have 20
or more people attending you will have to pay $100.00 for a
permit. This will include any
gathering held in your backyard or anywhere else. The
proposal contained other rules such as
the person having the event must provide security and cleaning crew. This means if you have a family get together
and you have more than 20 people there you will have to get a permit,
sheriff’s department or local police on hand and make sure you
up when it is over even if it is in your own yard.
