Columbus Police say no officers were injured in a shooting on S. 17th Street. Get the story.
Scioto Township Trustee Mike Stuckman is not moving forward with his proposed 10 million gallon sewage lagoon deemed safe by the EPA.
Stuckman says that he has notified Quasar, the company building the lagoon.
On Monday, he listened to a furious community at a town meeting.
Despite comments that he was not swayed by the residents, late Tuesday night he informed the village that he would not be moving forward with the plan.
Village Solicitor Mike Hess says that the village is taking Stuckman at his word but still proceeding with an appeal to the EPA’s permit.
It is not clear what will come of those appeals.
The EPA, as long as the project is deemed safe for the environment and people, doesn’t require a public hearing.
The community is now looking at cleaning up the statute for what is required in these kinds of applications.
