Hearing on tire shredding postponed


Hearing on tire shredding postponed

A hearing on Angelo's Aggregate Materials' request for permission to shred tires and crush asphalt and concrete at its construction landfill was postponed Thursday due to scheduling issues. The county's top administrators will hear the request when the Development Review Committee meets at 1:30 p.m. Aug. 9 at the historic courthouse in Dade City. The for-profit company, which also is seeking to build a controversial household garbage landfill on land it owns next to the construction landfill site, already has a permit for tire shredding from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. But county officials still require a land-use and zoning change for Angelo's to begin offering the tire shredding services. The county staff, which has been locked in a legal challenge over the proposed household garbage landfill, is recommending that commissioners grant the company's request to shred tires and crush asphalt and concrete, saying it does not open the door to approval of the other project.

The program will run from noon to 3 p.m. Wednesdays from June 13 to Aug. 8 at Prevention Projects, 13743 U.S. 98 Bypass. Students are invited to bring a friend to these free sessions.
