On Tuesday, August 14th, 2018 the Town of Eaton held a public hearing on the proposed local law that will require septic inspections upon the sale or transfer of title of any property around the lakes in our town. The Town Board will take into consideration the suggestions made at the Public Hearing and vote in October on the proposed local law. I want to thank the over 35 people who attended the public hearing to share their ideas,thoughts and concerns. A link to the local law presented is still at the bottom of this page.
