Sludge Free Upper Mount Bethel Township to hold forum tonight on sludge in Plainfield Township - Synagro proposal

The review of Synagro's application to site a biosolids/sludge processing plant in Plainfield Township was supposed to resume before the Planning Commission at its regular meeting tonight at 7pm at the Plainfield Township Fire Company on Sullivan Trail.  However, due to the Zoning Officer issuing a ruling late last week that affects Synagro's application, they will not reappear before January's Planning Commission meeting (or possibly they will next appear at the zoning hearing board if they go directly towards needed variances).

Sludge Free UMBT will however be holding an information session tonight at the same place and time as the Planning Commission's meeting, in a separate room of the fire company.  A video will be shown, as well as discussion.  Please be respectful of others in the building - the Planning Commission will be hearing two other applications by businesses who plan so locate in the township - businesses with a far better reputation than Synagro.  If you have a gripe or dispute, the Planning Commission's meeting tonight is not the appropriate forum for it, unless you want to stay until the agenda is complete and make public comments at that time.

It is reported that there will be an officer on duty to rough up your ass if you decide to cause trouble, so let's be civil while informing ourselves and expressing our opinions and concerns.
