GREENLEAF – On a 7-0 vote on Monday, September 23, the Town of Wrightstown Planning Commission endorsed the issuance of a conditional use permit for B.C. Organics (BCO) to build a $60 million manure digester on the north side of Mill Road, between Old 57 Road and Elmro Road.
The parcel of land is owned by the Wiese Brothers Farms and is across the road from the site where Brown County Resource Recovery is building a major landfill to take solid waste from Brown, Outagamie and Winnebago counties.
The action by the Planning Commission goes to the Wrightstown Town Board, which is expected to act on the conditional use permit when it meets at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, September 25 at the Town Hall on Day Street (State 96) in Greenleaf.
A story detailing the conditions of the permit – all of which the BCO principals said they were comfortable with – will be featured in the September 26 print edition of THE BRILLION NEWS. It is available Thursday at convenience stores in Greenleaf, Wrightstown, Hollandtown, Forest Junction, Hilbert, Brillion and Reedsville.
