JACKSON CO. -- If you live in Jackson County and plan to let people camp outside your home for the eclipse, you might have some paperwork to file.
An ordinance adopted in February mandates that property owners who want to charge campers to stay on their property, must register as a "temporary campground."
It involved paying a $20 registration fee and providing suitable sanitation for campers.
"If you're allowing people to camp and you're not charging them in any way, the ordinance will not apply," said Jackson County Director of Environmental Health Bart Hagston.
Hagston says the ordinance protects campers and others.
The county created a new section on its website to explain the process to potential applicants.
