On Tuesday, October 13, 2015 the Commissioners received four detailed drafts of ordinances prepared by their attorneys for their formal consideration. These proposals were first presented to the Commission im much simpler form 6 months ago. I was part of the group which drafted those original proposals so it is gratifying to see the basic ideas detailed in full legal language, carefully reflecting the extensive legal research required to effectively protect the fiealth and safety of the citizens of the county. The group who"~submitted the original proposals hoped that these requirements could provide the inIbrmation needed to inform county officials' decisions to issue building permits, thereby giving local government a tool for guiding industrial development in the county and insuring protections for residents. This tool should prove useful to the Commissioners who know that the state code expects county government to protect the health and safety of residents. Mr. Lightner, Mr. Woodrum, and Mr. Williams sre clearly familiar with the words of the code: "Commissions are hereby authorized to enact ord'inances, issue orders, and take other appropriate and necessary actions for the elimination of hazards to public health and safety and to abate or cause to be abated anything which the Commission determines to be a public nuisance (paragraph 7-1-3kk). ,The issues addressed include the following: The let and 2nd proposals are designed as modifications to the existing building code to help protect the water resources of the county from pollution and sedimentation resulting from industrial construction and development. These proposals are basically extensions of the Commission's earlier commitment made in the form of a resolution passed in 2014 to protect the waters of the county. The or~b~ances seem crucial given the role clean water is likely to play in the county's future economic buildings can cause major damage to streams and groundwater supplies with serious impact on private water sources. This is a significant problem throughout our region where geological conditions like steep hillsides increase the likelihood of destroying head water streams through increased run- off.
