The Pope County Board of Commissioners shall have on its agenda a proposed ordinance and shall conduct a related public hearing on Tuesday, April 2, 2024, at 9:00 am, or as soon thereafter as the matter can be heard, in the Courthouse Third Floor Boardroom on the proposed adoption of Ordinance No. 202404, which would repeal outdated provisions of the Pope County Environmental Health Administrative Ordinance. The proposed ordinance, if adopted, would specifically repeal Ordinance No. 201001, adopted May 18, 2010, which addressed licensure and fees regulating certain activities under the authority of public health offices under Minnesota laws and rules, where separate procedures are not established by delegation agreements with the State of Minnesota.  Specific public health licenses and fees are now addressed elsewhere in Ordinance Nos. 201501, 201502, 201503, 201504, and 201505, and public health officials advise no further need for the remaining provisions of Ordinance No. 201001.  The draft ordinance may be viewed here on the Pope County website at www.popecountymn.gov under News and Announcements.  The public may also view the draft ordinance and offer written comments on the ordinance before the date and time of the hearing to the County Administrator’s Office in person or by mail at the Pope County Courthouse, 130 Minnesota Ave. E., Glenwood, MN 56334.  The public is also invited to attend and offer oral or written testimony before the Board at the public hearing.
