Subdivisions now required to tap on to sewer

Most new subdivisions in Hartselle will now be required to connect to the sewer system.
Hartselle's City Council passed the mandatory sewer hookup ordinance Tuesday night. The ordinance applies only to new subdivisions and will not affect existing homes.
The ordinance requires subdivisions consisting of two or more houses to connect to the sewer system if the nearest property line of a home in the development is within a certain distance. That distance is determined as 50 feet times the number of houses in a development.
For example, a development with 20 lots would be required to connect if the nearest property line is within 1,000 feet of the sewer line.
The ordinance does allow for limited exceptions to the regulations, mainly based on topographic or geological restrictions.

In return, the county will now offer emergency assistance to Hartselle's animal control officer.
