WARSAW, Ind. (WOWO): Warsaw City Council Monday approved on second reading an ordinance that creates a hazardous material response fund.
The fund, called the Hazmat Response Fund, will be maintained by charges imposed on a person who is a responsible party with respect to a hazardous materials emergency.
Revenue collected for hazardous materials may be used only for the purchase of supplies and equipment used in providing hazardous materials emergency assistance.
Billing for services of the fire territory for hazardous materials will be based on the state fire marshal’s annually published schedule of service charges for fire protection services.
