Commission plans to form logging committee

Published 4:44pm Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Wearren said the main purpose of the ordinance would serve as a communication tool to let him know what the loggers are doing within the county.

“This ordinance would let me keep track of certain roads throughout the county that might have received damage from the logging trucks,” Wearren said.

Wearren said a major concern some loggers have toward the ordinance involves the time frame of submitting a notification and waiting for it to be approved.

“98 percent of the time they would more than likely have to wait a few hours for me to approve something,” Wearren said. “It would not take me two days to get back with them but those are things we hope to discuss in the committee.”

Caton said he is waiting to hear back from the loggers on a definite time they can get together but hopes the committee will meet several times in February in order to have the ordinance ready by March.

“We are going to do something as far as a logging ordinance but what it will involve I won’t know until we have the opportunity to sit down with some of the loggers and come up with a solution that will work for everyone,” Caton said.
