    Nobody forced those businesses there. They built their business there because the land was cheaper near the sewer plant. The plant was there years before development in the area started. This is just like those that build near the airport and complain about the planes or those that move near a farm and complain about smells, noise, etc.

    The plant smells but it is very, very much improved over the years. TSSD has worked very hard to keep people happy. There is no smell there that would make someone actually sick. I have worked in the area before when it was worse and no one was physically affected. I still go there occationally to dump green waste or to buy some compost. It is a great service to the community.

    Now this lawsuit will just run up our taxes and what benifit do we the tax payer get? None. I will remember what these businesses cost me when I go looking for a car or shop in the area.

    I pity anyone driving a convertible or a motorcycle through that stretch - especially if traffic is backed up.....

    It is sad that it has come to this, but perhaps a lawsuit was inevitable. Driving down I-15 in Pleasant Grove you can always tell when they are turning the compost piles, and I can only imagine what it must be like to live or work close by. The time has come to force a resolution to this 'stinky' problem.

    So you just need to keep it covered. What's the big deal. Make some big huge covered tanks for it. Really, that's disgusting to keep it open like that. My city keeps it covered - no smell.
