LCB: Levee Trespassing Ordinance Review

The Lawrence County, Illinois Board is reviewing an ordinance requiring the Levee Authority to give permission to the sheriff to get vehicles off the levee on township roads east of Illinois 33.

County Board Chairman Bill Gray says the requirement created aproblem during the recent floods...

The board is considering a change in the ordinance giving the Sheriff's department permission to use its own discretion.

Gray said no one needs to be near the levee during a flood anyway because of potential damage to the levee and personal safety.
