WHEREAS, the Village has recently experienced problems with steep lots being developed causing dirt, debris and other excavated materials to accumulate in the public Right-of- Way and onto surrounding properties
NOW, THERFORE, Be it ordained by the Council of Granville, Ohio, that:
Section I: Section 1117.05 of the Codified Ordinances of the Village of Granville be amended to include:
(c ) Stormwater Erosion Control Policy. "In order to control dust, dirt, debris and other excavated materials from depositing upon the public Right-of-Way or surrounding properties, all lots having grades greater than 8% shall be required to install erosion control silt fencing as determined by the Village Manager or his/her designee. Required erosion control silt fencing shall be installed prior to any excavations taking place and removed when grass, ground cover or landscaping has established underground root growth sufficient to no longer pose a potential erosion problem." Section II: Wherefore, this ordinance shall be in full force and effect upon the earliest date allowed by law.
