Emissions from a Rock County ethanol plant has locals sounding off. Some Milton residents say their health is suffering from emissions from the nearby United Ethanol Plant.
But United Ethanol President Dave Cramer says his company is vigilant.
Mayor Tom Chesmore says even though only a few neighbors complain of health problems from emissions those residents deserve to be able to breathe clean air.
The Milton Plan Commission held a fact finding hearing Monday regarding the plant’s conditional use permit. However it appears the plant does not have such a permit. The city is determining the best route to use to regulate potential emissions and odors from the facility.
