Greenco given 30 day grace period

In a hearing turned mediation session Wednesday, Greenco was given another 30-day grace period to deal with allegations of offensive odors emanating from its composting facility on Roger Brown Drive. County commission chairman Jay Matthews, commissioner Nancy Thrash, county attorney Scott Mayfield and IDA executive director Missy Kendrick were on hand to moderate mediation with neighbors who complained of odors from the plant. Most of the mediation was done behind closed doors Lesko explained most of his problems were caused by unprecedented rainfall for which he was unprepared. Neighbors agreed conditions have improved in recent weeks. Lesko will host a town hall style informational meeting to explain his composting processes to the neighbors and others. Kendrick and the IDA will assist in hosting the meeting ”What we’ve done is met with citizens and we’ve all agreed that things have improved since the last complaints were made in December. We trust that Greenco will continue with the progress already made,” Matthews said The follow-up hearing has been scheduled for Monday, February 15 at 1:30pm.
