$500 fine, potential jail time for illegal dumping


HACKLEBURG -  The Hackleburg Town Council approved and signed a local ordinance that will allow the town to punish those who illegally dump into the Hackleburg sewage system during a regular meeting on Monday, July 8, in Hackleburg.
During a regular meeting in May, Tyler McKeller with the sewer treatment plant told the council that there was suspected illegal tapping and dumping into the sewage system in the town.
According to McKeller, the waste found at the treatment plant had been causing buildup and was costing the town more money because of the high volume of waste being pumped through the system.
He suggested that the town create an ordinance that would punish those illegally dumping into the system.
