Orange County Repeals New Horse Manure Ordinance

Last updated on Wednesday, December 28, 2016

(PAOLI,) - Orange County, which has a significant Amish population, has repealed a recently passed ordinance that would have fined people if their horses left manure on county roads.

The Times Mail reports that the Orange County Commissioners voted 2-1 last week to repeal the ordinance after hearing from several people unhappy with its provisions.

The measure, passed in November, recommended a minimum $250 fine for people found in violation, and would also have required horse owners to fit the animals with diaper-like devices when they ventured onto county roads.

The ordinance was passed after citizens complained to the commissioners that their cars' tires were getting caked with manure.
