Marshall County Commissioners Approve Ordinance Violation Fines

Marshall County Attorney Jim Clevenger presented the commissioners this week with a ticket format for fines and fine amounts for ordinance violations.

Sheriff Matt Hassel and Clerk Deb Vandemark asked that the commissioners set more definitive fines for ordinance offenses such as curfew violation, junk vehicles, open burning, and animals running at large.

Most fines are $50 while a home solicitation registration violation and traveling during a travel restriction are $250.

An amendment to the violation bureau ordinance will be created to reflect the changes in fees.

The commissioners approved the fines and the proposed ticket format for the officers to use when writing a ticket.
