Olga Lassmann lives on 305 N. Hoppe and loves the country life. But with recent events she is concerned for the well being of her family and neighbors alike.
During the city council meeting held on March 23, Lassmann was given the opportunity to express her concerns.
“We have a water well next to the creek. There is a lot of stuff being buried underground (i.e. oil, plastic, etc.). There was a trailer house that they completely tore up. They did have a backhoe and as far as I can tell they buried it all. Trailer houses have styrofoam, plastic, glass, etc. If it is buried, fumes will be coming up. It will affect us.”
Lassmann has lived there 37 years. “My husband has lived there 45 years and we raised our children there. We call it our little country home and we do not plan to move. We are concerned about the release of hazardous material and I hope that someone will do something about this,” Lassmann said.
