    155.07 VIOLATIONS. A violation of this chapter occurs when the property owner allows sediment to flow off the property onto an adjoining property, including public streets, sidewalks, and storm drains from any rain event. It is also a violation when erosion control is not used or when improperly used as described herein. Each day that a violation of any provision of this chapter is permitted to exist shall constitute a separate offense. Violations of any provision of this chapter are guilty of a municipal infraction punishable by a fine of $250 for a first offense, second offense is $500 with Administrator to suspend indefinitely any City issued permit related to the applicant’s project due to failure to comply with regulations or purpose set forth by this chapter, or any other requirements of the law, statue or regulations. The only work that will be allowed on the site will be the work to achieve compliance and other work on the site will be considered a violation of this chapter and guilty of a municipal infraction punishable by a fine of $750. The suspension of the permit will be removed once the entire site is within compliance with this chapter.


    The erosion control permit holder is responsible for keeping sediments from leaving the construction site.


    The Public Works Supervisor will inspect erosion and sediment control measures in conjunction with routine inspections. Inspections will ensure that appropriate erosion and sediment control measures are in place and properly installed.

    The first inspection will occur before or during land disturbing activity. This inspection will include the following:

    • Inlet Protection
    • Protection of Adjacent Lots
    • Grading/Excavating
    • Stabilize Soil Stockpiles
    • Temporary Construction Entrance

    There will be instances that fall outside the norms. The Public Works Supervisor will be available to discuss erosion and sediment control measures for any lot and the sequencing for installation. If you have questions or concerns call 712-331-1042 to speak with Bronson Seymour, Zoning Administrator.
