GREENLEAF – The Wrightstown Town Board has scheduled a public hearing for Wednesday, July 10, to “receive public input, concern and comment” regarding a request by BC Organics to build a communal manure digester on Mill Road.

BC Organics is the company the proposed building the industrial scale digester in the Town of Holland on the southwest corner of Old 57 Road and Lamers Clancy Road. After nearly a year of meetings and hearings, the Holland Town Board voted 2-1 to deny the conditional use permit needed for the project to go forward.

The parcel (W-382) is owned by DMW Real Estate, LLC, a company associated with the Wiese Brothers Farm – one of the farms that would pipe dairy cattle manure to BC Organics for processing. The parcel is nearly 39 acres in size, and is located directly across the Mill Road (County IL) from the proposed Brown County South Landfill, and a \half mile west of Old 57 Road. Mill Road is the border between the towns of Holland and Wrightstown.

The hearing will be held at 6:50 p.m. at the Wrightstown Town Hall, 1527 Day Street.
