Peoria County OKs septic system code changes
“We had asked the citizens to get involved and the citizens really took charge of this issue and I think they did an outstanding job of coming back with a solution,” Phelan says.
The new regulations include requiring homeowners to prove their whole septic systems are safe when repairing only a part of the system. In other business, the County Board approved two labor agreements with the Engineers and Sheriff Deputy Unions. Each agreement lasts for five years and includes wage increases up to three percent annually.
