Le Sueur County held a public hearing on Tuesday, January 25th starting at 9:10am.  The purpose of the public hearing was to have the public provide input about the proposed Volney, Gorman, Cordova Septic Inventory.  Additionally, the project would also include how to enforce septic compliance in the future after the septic inventory is completed.  The board voted to require No Constant State of Compliance after the Volney, Gorman, Cordova SSTS Inventory is completed.  The ordinance was adopted and effective on Tuesday January 25th 2022.
