Swancreek Board denies variance request
The Swancreek Township Board of Zoning Appearls Thursday denied a variance request from Selection Sanitation Service for a proposed new location for the business.
Owners Brian and Bernadette Meyer have proposed relocating their business and building a home at 1501 County Road C. The business is currently located at 1200 County Road 4, just north of the Henry County line.
The Meyers were asking for permission to store trucks on the property and put up a sign to move the business there. The business’s current location is in an unzoned area of the township, while the proposed new location is in a zoned area.
Some neighbors had voiced objections to the plan citing the possibility of pollution in the Oak Openings region. Meyer said any garbage collected is taken to a dump off site and the trucks are sealed to prevent leakage.
