Wyoming company to answer questions about waste soil business proposal

June 6, 2012 in Events, Features, News, Opinion

The Natrona County Commission will hear two requests Tuesday from a Mills business owner who hopes to build a facility to recycle and process waste soil from the oil and gas industry.

The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. in District Courtroom 1 at the Natrona County Courthouse.

Anchor Environmental is requesting a zone change from Urban Mixed Residential to Light Industrial and a conditional use permit to build the facility.

The Natrona County Planning and Zoning Commission granted the zoning change last month but turned down the request for a conditional use permit.

Some neighbors expressed questions and concerns about access and safety during a public hearing last month.

Commissioner Ed Opella said the board will need more information to make a decision, and expects the answers to more questions during Tuesday’s meeting.

Meanwhile, at a 12:15 p.m. work session in Room 115 of the courthouse, the commissioners will hear budgets from a number of entities for which the county oversees funding. Groups presenting their budgets include the City-County Department of Health, Natrona County Public Library, Central Wyoming Fair, Casper/Natrona County International Airport, Community Action Partnership, Natrona County Weed and Pest District and Pari-Mutuel Racing.
