The Clay County Board of Supervisors convened Monday to discuss, among other things, a rewording in the proposed RV ordinance.
Following the beginning prayer by District 4 Supervisor Shelton Deanes, the board went straight to business.
The board passed the rewording of a specific subsection in the much-discussed RV ordinance regarding preliminary plans for fire protection. As stated in Article 3 subsection K: â€śFire hydrants shall be installed throughout the RV Park in accordance with state statues.â€ť The discussion about the wording stems from the Sept. 26 meeting in which a citizen expressed a concern about the proper installation of a fire hydrant, more specifically possible consequences that would arise from improper handling of the hydrant.
â€śYouâ€™ve got some of these young (firefighters) that havenâ€™t been (thoroughly) trained,â€ť said Deanes. â€śThis could backfire.â€ť
