Marion Council amends ordinances
to increase fines
By SARAH DUKE Staff writer
MARION — City Council members voted unanimously Monday night to amend all city ordinances raising maximum fines from $200 to $1,000.
“All we’re doing is bringing our regulations in line with state allowances,” said Councilman Odis Loosier. Recent legislation allows cities to increase maximum fines.
“It (amending ordinances) is just giving more leeway to the city in dealing with offenders,” said Mayor Clarence Jackson.
The council also amended the junked car ordinance to decrease the time allowed for removal of cars from 120 to 45 days.
After protests from Councilman Charles Schulz, the council voted three to one to approve an amendment to the nuisance ordinance. The amendment requires residents to remove doors from or lock aban-donded refrigerators.
“I think this is just going too far," Schulz said. “I have sense enough to take care of my own refrigerator.”
The council considered action on a livestock ordinance. Marion now has no ordinance governing livestock and fowl within the city limits.
The mayor said several persons have complained about livestock in town, particularly horses.
“I think the way the town is growing and the way people are not taking care of their yards, I would say this (a livestock ordinance) is something we might need,” Shulz said. “But I think we need to study this further before we jump into something.”
The council voted to reconsider a livestock ordinance after a study has been made into legal technicalities. Councilmembers will use Seguing livestock ordinance as a guideline.
In other business, the mayor suggested the council consider the drainage problems made evident by recent rains. He recommended council members tour the city to view water standing in driveways.
The mayor said the problem is a major one and will probably be put on the next council agenda.
More fetal deaths
linked to cheese
LOS ANGEl.ES i AP) - The toll of deaths and stillbirths linked to a bacteria found in tainted cheese rose to 64 as county health officials blamed the bacterial infection for two more fetal deaths.
Listeriosis, the disease caused by the bacteria, was detected in four additional Los Angeles-area mothers and their newborns and in a 39-year-old man with a chronic illness, health department spokeswoman Myrtha Woolley said Monday.
Investigators blame some of the listeriosis deaths in California and six other states on a bactena-tainted Mexiean-style cheese Two types of cheese found to be tainted with the listeria monocytogenes germs have been recalled
Newborns, the elderly and those with chronic illness are particularly susceptible to the bacteria, two strains of which have been detected sofar_
