The policy applies to events taking place on advertised properties for uses such as weddings, reunions, graduations and food events for a fee or otherwise commercial use that may include more than 50 attendees. It is not the county’s intent to regulate private parties hosted by property owners, the ordinance states.

It makes good financial sense to get your home and vehicle ready for the winter. So doesn’t it make just as much sense to put some effort into winterizing your landscaping? After all, according to horticultural and lending experts – not your usual bedfellows – landscaping is one of the few home improvements that always increases both the curb appeal and the value of your property. Not only that, but that added value can grow as the landscaping grows and matures over time. Besides, if you’re reading this column, you either enjoy gardening or you enjoy the results of gardening. The last thing you want is to see your hard work during the other three seasons of the year come to nothing after an ugly winter catches you off guard.
