 HUNTERS HOLLOW - Years of struggle have at least resulted in legal compliance for the city of Hunters Hollow in reference to soil erosion and storm water drainage.

The city commission approved two ordinances that will bring Hunters Hollow into compliance with Bullitt County’s regulations.

Hunters Hollow is joining the other four north end cities (Fox Chase, Hebron Estates, Hillview and Pioneer Village) in updating regulations to match county regulations.

The five cities have been involved in an interlocal storm water agreement for the past decade, sharing an engineer to assist in keeping all cities in compliance with state regulations.

The two ordinances, pertaining to soil erosion and storm water runoff, update the cities’ previous regulation stipulations to match those enforced by the county.

The ordinances are scheduled to go into effect as of April 1.

In other business:

- City attorney Mark Edison said two members of the Bullitt County Sanitation District’s board have been served legal papers.

The city is suing BCSD due to ditchwork performed on city streams without a permit from the city.

Edison said the suit was in progress, informing the council that he had been contacted by BCSD’s insurance lawyer.

- Normally a warm weather nuisance, commissioners reported a wave of four-wheeler incidents in the city following substantial snowfalls.

Four-wheelers were traveling on many properties without permission.

Mayor Linda Parker added that signs were stolen in the past that warned not to trespass on various properties within the city.

The commission planned to increase police patrols in the hope of limiting future situations.

- The next Hunters Hollow CIty Commission meeting takes place Tuesday, March. 18, 7 p.m., in the Larry Belcher meeting room at Jewish Hospital Medical Center South. The public is invited to attend.
