Thursday night’s crowd was a sea of green with many audience members wearing the green T-shirts supporting the “Ban Sludge in Trimble County!” group.
Officials field sludge farm questions in public meeting

Robert Olds from R&R Septic and Excavating Services withdrew his pending landfarm application for the proposed sludge farm off McKinney Lane. This meant a public hearing, officially recording responses from residents, was canceled. However, officials from the Energy and Environment Cabinet still hosted a meeting to answer questions from a crowd of a couple hundred residents wanting to know more about the state’s permitting process and criteria for landfarming.
