Neighbors of Tri State Crush in Nappanee, IL, told their council Monday evening that they're still having issues with dust, noise, slime and odor from the soybean processing plant, reports The Goshen News.
Judy Speicher told the mayor and council, “I’ve been a good neighbor like you asked because you said they’d get it fixed — it’s been two years and that stuff is still all over — my car’s filthy, my kid’s playthings are filthy — the kids haven’t been able to play outside for two years.”
Mayor Phil Jenkins said he contacted Indiana Department of Environmental Management and there have been five complaints against the business but IDEM found no violations.
Council members discussed the issue further as they were reviewing tax phase-in compliance forms and Tri State was one of the five that were reviewed. Tri State is in year three of a seven year tax abatement for real and personal property.
