O'Meara was not present, due to vacation, when the meeting was <br />called to order by Chairman B. G. Brown. <br />. <br />MINUTES: Commissioner Brown seconded Commissioner Pitts' ,motion <br />to approve the minutes for the meeting of July 20, 1983. Unanimous. <br /> <br />Authorization to Install a Septic Holding Tank; Warren and Patricia <br />Olney: Gael Stuart read a letter trom the Olney's, (Attachment 1) dated <br />August 9, 1983, outlining their problem and experiences to date. Doctor <br />Fiscnnaller and Randy Durant reviewed the history of the site evaluations <br />for these lots, noting that a Privy Permit was issued in 1980, for <br />use as a campsite, after septic tank permit denial, The Olney's are <br />currently requesting a holding tank permit. <br /> <br />The State Board of Health's Regulation and Policy on holding tan'zs <br />was read by Randy, which advises that holding tanks should not be used <br />for a residence and if they are used it should be only in an emergency <br />or limited use (dump station) situation, Overflows are a problem and <br />the cost of hauling can be prohibitive to the homeowner. The County <br />does not have the manpower to police holding tanks. <br /> <br />Of the two holding tanks presently in use in the County, one was an <br />emergency situation and the other was allowed after the party had it <br />installed in the face of a septic tank permit denial. The County is <br />charging for regular inspections of the holding tank. <br /> <br />Triad Associates, an Engineering firm hired by the Olney's reported <br />by letter dated December 24, 1980 (Attachment 1) that the lots do not <br />meet the present County requirements for on site sewage disposal and <br />suggested that the Olney's inquire about alternate methods every year <br />or so, as the technology in this area is changing rapidly. It was <br />their opinion that the Olney's only present option for on-site sewage <br />disposal is the use of a privy. <br />
