LaGrange County Commission Orders Fines
Thursday, June 4, 2020

LaGrange County Commissioners have ordered a fine against a Cedar Lake homeowner.

During this week's meeting the Commission voted to approve a fine of $100 a week against Gerri Hydorn. The hope is that the fines will get her to remove items from her property at 6930 North County Road 320 East, that the Code Enforcement Officer has labeled as a violation of the County's public nuisance ordinance. The fines are retroactive back to March 16th.

The Commission has scheduled several public hearings with Hydron, but she
has not attended any of them.

In other business, the Commission voted to continue their emergency ordinance that allows them to appoint representatives to oversee the County's buildings. The ordinance would also have the representatives advise the Commission about how it is best to keep the buildings safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The emergency ordinance has been extended for two weeks.
