Board denies new tank

MONROE - Applause from nearly all of the 91 attendees at a public hearing on Wednesday night rang throughout the Green County courthouse board room as a request for a 1.8-million-gallon tank meant for the storage of liquid waste to be built was unanimously struck down. The Green County Board of Adjustment members made the decision after hearing almost two hours of testimony from 14 speakers about the effect of the three current tanks of food waste located at W7512 County C in the Town of Adams. Members asked that the company examine how to make the area less noxious to neighbors and re-apply in a year, when they are allowed to file a new request.
