GREENCASTLE -- In response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's direction to establish a local ordinance that would comply with their "National Pretreatment Program," an ordinance enhancing the city of Greencastle's grease interceptor/trap policy has been offered to the city council for consideration. The Council will be making a determination on the ordinance at its Dec. 8 meeting.
The Ordinance will directly affect food service facilities: establishments primarily engaged in activities of preparing, serving, or otherwise making food available for consumption by the public, as well as private facilities that regularly serve 25 people or more per day.
To provide those who will be affected with an opportunity to lean about the National Pretreatment Program and ordinance, utility superintendent George Russell will be offering two presentations at city hall. The first will be on Dec. 1 at 9 a.m. and the second will be on Dec. 3 at 2 p.m.
