No ink, no ordinance ...

Here is one from the "news of the weird."

According to Todd County Judge-Executive Arthur Green, in May of 2003 the Todd County Fiscal Court passed an ordinance dealing with subdivisions.

In an ironic blunder, the ordinance was never put into effect. It was passed by the court. It was put into the minutes. But, oddly, it was never published in the newspaper within 10 days --- which is required by law.

So, now the current fiscal court will have to deal with the issue from square one and how this will affect the current subdivisions is hard to say.

Either way, how local government deals with growth (especially subdivisions) could be one of the biggest challenges to Todd County in the next five to ten years.

So, what excatly was the ordinance supposed to affect at the time? Zoning?

Not so much zoning as how the subdivisions would be built. There could be some restrictions on where they can go as well. The main point is that the county will now have to start from scratch and it will be up the fiscal court.
