City eyes mandatory sewer for some

By Staff
Leada Gore, Hartselle Enquirer
Hartselle's City Council is considering an ordinance that would require mandatory sewer hookups for most new developments.
The policy requires a subdivision to connect to the system if the property line closest to the sewer line is within a specific distance. The distance is determined by the number of lots in the development multiplied by 50 feet.
For example, a subdivision with 20 lots would be required to connect to the sewer system if the property line is within 1,000 feet of the connection.
The council will hold a public hearing on the plan at its Feb. 28 meeting. The meeting will start at 7 p.m.
If approved, the ordinance will only impact new developments and wouldn't affect existing homes. It does not address a push by some to require homeowners with failing septic systems to connect to the sewer lines if they live within a specific range.
