Kompel Reminds Public on Fencing
City of Glasgow Public Works Director Robert Kompel asks the public to be aware of changes to the city ordinance on fencing, which took effect last summer. The changes listed in Ordinance No. 953 impact the construction of fences at corners and intersections within city limits. Kompel reports an uptick in fencing related calls to Montana 811, the national number designated by the Federal Communications Commission to help protect do-it-yourselfers, landscapers and contractors from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines while working on digging projects. What he hasn’t noticed is a corresponding uptick in applications for new fencing permits. In an effort to reconcile these figures, Kompel reminds builders that the permitting process is easy and affordable (permits cost $5).
