Ind. Gov't. - "Sewage plant fight hits $250,000"
Some quotes from a story by Vivian Sade in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette:
Huntertown has spent more than $250,000 objecting to the state’s denial of a permit for a wastewater treatment plant.
The Indiana Department of Environmental Management turned down Huntertown’s request for a permit to build its own $11.2 million sewage plant in October. Huntertown filed an appeal, which is currently before the Indiana Office of Environmental Adjudication.
According to figures provided by Huntertown’s deputy clerk-treasurer, Janine Rudolph, the town has spent $223,088 in legal and engineering fees in the appeal process.
In addition, town officials have four times extended an option – paying $1,000 to $10,000 each time – to buy a 26-acre site on Hathaway Road for $393,500 where they hope to build the new plant.
