CHESTERVILLE — The Planning Board will hold a public hearing Thursday, Jan. 30, on a draft of a new Fireworks Ordinance and amendments to the Water Quality Ordinance that voters adopted in 2013.

Residents voted 147-94 in November to adopt an ordinance to protect water quality in the town. It sets guidelines on commercial water extraction and mineral extraction but does not prohibit them.

The amendments would clarify some of the sections in the ordinance, Selectman Guy Iverson said.

The changes in the water protection ordinance have not been finalized and are expected to be worked out at the hearing at 7 p.m. at the Town Office, he said.

Code Enforcement Officer Brenda Medcoff was not available to speak to the Sun Journal.

The Fireworks Ordinance was requested by a citizen and drafting of an ordinance was approved at the annual town meeting last year, Iverson said.


“We do not currently have an ordinance in place,” he said.

The ordinance proposes to set rules for using fireworks in the town.

If the ordinance and the changes are approved by the Planning Board, they could go before voters at the annual town meeting on March 10.
