EGELSTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Local officials have rescinded a zoning ordinance amendment restricting the use of portable toilets in Egelston Township.

The decision was made Monday night after a resident Daryl Card presented a petition with hundreds of signatures to force a public vote on the amendment.

Township Supervisor John Holter made a motion to rescind an amendment limiting the use of porta-potties to eight days a year and the original 1970s ordinance banning outhouses. The Egelston Township board then voted 5-1 in favor of the motion.

The Muskegon Chronicle (https://bit.ly/18NGjoc ) reports Card and other opponents of the ordinance argued it hurt youth sport teams that rely on portable restrooms on their playing fields.
