North Judson Town Council Approves Updated Fee Schedule Ordinance

An ordinance updating the Town of North Judson’s schedule of fees was brought before the council members for consideration Monday night.

The fee schedule was originally adjusted to include a gas-line inspection fee of $50, at the request of Building Inspector Jeff Abrams. Some additional changes were made to the document after Town Superintendent Marshall Horstman noted that the fees for the utility crew haven’t seen an update for many years.

He proposed adjusting the fee for labor hours from $30 to $50 and the rate for after-hours labor from $75 to $100. Those changes were made and presented in the most recent version of the ordinance.

Members voted to forgo the rules and consider the ordinance on all three readings. It was passed unanimously. Clerk-Treasurer Andrew Rowe noted that the changes will not go into effect until 30 days after a notice is posted in the paper.
