The Wayne Conservation District Board approved a change to the Districts’ review fees for the Erosion and Sediment Control program. The only category with a change is the commercial sites. After review the costs in time for reviews it was determined that the costs were not being met on commercial sites only. The result is an increase in the charges for reviews that fit this category.
