Trustees take wait and see attitude on rumoured Plant Anderson township trustees Are taking a wait and see but cautious attitude on the rumoured Plant that might be proposed just upstream of the proposed Queen City Grain co. Grain terminal. Trustees Tom Taylor and John of Brien said they had heard rumours about Hilltop Concrete corp. Being interested in frontage on the Ohio River. Taylor said he did t see How a Concrete Plant would be Quot compatible with the township. He predicted a a Strong fight from the Community if a Plant is proposed along the River. There were published reports last week that Hilltop is negotiating with the owner of the Neptune Marine boat Harbor 6777 Kellogg ave., to buy frontage. Chick Dunaway owner of Neptune Marine said he talked Only with a real estate agent from Hilltop. It was not known if Neptune Marine would remain but there was speculation that it might just Selling land adjacent to its operation. If Hilltop did decide to build a Plant that firm would have to follow the same procedure Queen City Grain has had to do seek a permit from the corps of engineers and a zoning variance from the Board of zoning appeals. Both Taylor and of Brien said there would be a lot of dust involved with any Concrete facility. Of Brien pointed out that All Scenic and recreation aspects of the area would be taken away if both the Concrete Plant and Grain terminal were constructed in the locale. Of Brien conjectured that the Plant could be depreciated in a different manner that would provide More of a tax Revenue than the Grain terminal would. He has heard rumours of a trucking company possibly being interested in the area but that report was a second or third hand and could Well have been confused with the Hilltop report of Brien told. The trustee suspected that the neighbors would object More strenuously to a Concrete facility than they did to the Grain terminal last month. A we have got to consider All of the township a he said. A a we a have to evaluate the situation very he said any combination of the Concrete Plant and the Grain terminal would cause a Hel Lacious traffic problems on Kellogg ave. He understands that the Hamilton county Engineer does not have funds for widening Kellogg ave. Even if he decided to. Trustees actually have no official say in deciding the Issue but their opinions Are weighed by both the corp and the Board of zoning appeals if in making any determinations. Trustees have been unhappy that land in flood Plain is not subject to rezoning requirements As Are other land use change requests in the county. Of Brien raised the Point again in a journal interview last week. He wanted to emphasize that he was not criticizing the capabilities of the zoning appeals workers and officials but Only the present governmental procedure in such instances. Hilltop reportedly wants to build a facility for handling Limestone Aggregates coming from Kentucky or Indiana. This material would then be used in the manufacture of Concrete. Whether Hilltop would construct a Plant is not known
