The Elko New Market Planning Commission will hold two public hearings at its Tuesday, Sept. 1, meeting. Both hearings concern changes to ordinances. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. and will be held at the Elko New Market City Hall.

One ordinance deals with the types of trees that can be planted in the city. The commission is proposing the removal of ash trees from the list due to recent concerns of the Emerald Ash Borer. The beetle has been found in Minnesota and is a danger to ash trees since it can kill them.
