BIG RUN — Big Run Borough Council planted a new ordinance in the code
book and mowed down an old one at the same time at Monday's meeting.
Council voted to approve Ordinance No. 226, which repealed Ordinance No. 205 for junk.

Nick Lantz, council president, said the new ordinance adds in lawn clippings, grass, sticks and leaves from being placed in the street.
"If these items are not removed from the roads after mowing is completed, there are fines to be assessed from $50 up to $1,000," Lantz said.

Several people who were in the audience commented on the new ordinance prior to its approval.
