MHFVD looks toward new year at January meeting

At the Mint Hill Volunteer Fire Department’s first meeting of the new year, Chief John Phillips and the members of the department reflected on the past year and readied for the new one.

The meeting began by remembering those who had passed, and those that are sick or injured, including members of the Mint Hill community, and people throughout the nation.

Three applications were accepted, and those potential members began their 90-day probation period, while that period ended for six others, who were accepted into full membership with the department.

New laws that can affect you

In the wee hours of the first of January, 16 new laws came into effect that can and will effect our community. Many of the new laws are just technical changes to previous laws, but some deal with employee verification, protecting children in day cares, and stealing kitchen grease from restaurants.

Employers and local governments must now use E-Verify to verify the work authorization of newly hired employees. This law is a part of a phasing process that currently affects large companies and will soon impact smaller companies in July.

Harsher penalties have been enacted for those who steal cooking oil. If you steal more than $1,000 worth of grease, expect to be charged with a felony. Less than $1,000 in grease will result in a misdemeanor.
