Scott County will consider drug cleanup ordinance

The Scott County Board will hold a public hearing on a proposed ordinance governing the cleanup of clandestine drug lab sites used to produce illegal drugs—usually methamphetamines—that are found within the county.

The Methamphetamine Task Force, consisting of representatives of the county attorney’s office, human services, community development, the sheriff’s office, county administration, and the cities within Scott County, drafted the ordinance. The hearing will be at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 20. At the hearing, the board will accept public feedback and consider adoption of the ordinance.

The funds are from the MOEA provided to all counties through the SCORE grants which are generated by the state from fees on solid waste collection.

• Lill Farrar, a 31-year employee of the Scott County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Management, was recognized on the occasion of her retirement at the November 29 meeting of the Scott County Board.
