Disposal site hearing delayed, concerns differ in Nordheim

 

Right off Broadway, on West First Street, the Nordheim City Hall building sits unassuming. But lately, it hasn’t been too quiet. Inside the building, Nordheim mayor Kathy Payne works on the town’s budget.
 
In addition to her usual duties as mayor, Payne also has been following the plans of a proposed solid waste disposal site on Hohn Road, near town. Peyote Systems, LLP, filed the application for the disposal site. Residents of the town frequently visit the office with concerns about the proposed site.
 
“I really believe you have to understand both sides,” Payne said.
 
To do this, Payne has met with PetroWaste Environmental chief operating officer Sammy Cooper. Cooper visited town June 26 and July 17.
