WHEREAS, the Board of Directors of the Gnaw Bone Regional Sewage District (hereinafter referred to as “District”), has heretofore adopted Ordinance No. 98-01; and,
WHEREAS, on the 7th day of December, 2009, the District adopted Ordinance No. 2009-01, An Ordinance Amending Section 3, Paragraphs 302 and 303, of Ordinance No. 98-01; and,
