Sewage Plant Proposal Meeting Gets Heated

The Fannett community had a meeting Tuesday evening in order to discuss the sewage plant proposal.

FANNETT - No sewer signs were shown to representatives during a Fannett Sewer Service and Water Supply Corporation meeting Tuesday night.

The heated topic of a proposed waste water plant had people raising questions and concerns once again. 

"I'm here today to express my concerns to the waste water treatment plant and health hazards that posed to our community along with schools, animals, and our children." Said Fannett resident, Joe Daigle.

Many people asking the same question on why bother with a new sewage system. Others were upset to hear the answer.

"Its because the USDA has finally gotten back to us and for the last six years we've been dealing with all the information we need from the corps of engineers to requirements." Said Steven Heironimus, President of Fannett Sewer Service and Water Supply Corp.

Organizers say up to three hundred petition signatures have been collected around the community opposing the plant. 

Sarah Bardwell lives in Green Acres and likes the idea of having a sewage plant in town. Bardwell also attended the meeting to learn more about the proposal and what officials had to say.

"I think its going to be a good thing for the community." She says.

Heironimus says they will hold another community meeting soon.
