Landfill group organizes Opry event to assist with letter writing campaign
The Butler County Opry, held on Saturday night at Butler County Middle School, was a huge success. The event was in support of efforts to prevent a landfill from locating in Butler County.
"We now have 174 signed letters waiting to go to Frankfort as soon as OHA files their administrative application, and the 30-day public comment period begins," said Frank House, Butler County Stop the Landfill member.
The state has approved Owls Head's notice of intent to build a landfill in Butler County. That is the first step of several that they must complete to gain final approval. Once Owls Head files their next application, a 30-day public comment period will open, which is why the Butler County Opry /letter signing was organized. Letters were available to sign, and envelopes and postage was provided. Embry Impressions provided the letter and envelopes.
