The Seneca County General Health District Board of Health discussed methane burn off at Sunny Farm Landfill, during their Environmental Division Report Thursday meeting.
Several members of the Board met with the Environmental Protection Agency to discuss the effects of lighting torches at Sunny Farms Landfill, Board member Laura Wallrabenstein said.
Board members are concerned the methane burn off may not work.
"This is our citizens and our county that smell this day in and day out and we as health district employees and board of health members are concerned that our citizens have to deal with this," Wallrabenstein said.
Sunny Farms Landfill is located on SR 18 in Fostoria.
"I can firmly say to the board we are actively involved in this issue and we are doing all we can to help the residents and the landfill to resolve this issue," Broadhead said.
In other news, a temporary mass gatherings regulations and proposed fee of $226 was passed and will go into effect June 1 and will include a late fee of $100 if filed less than 30 days before the event.
