Solve the smell problem soon

The acrid smell of the composting facility below is ever-present at home on Tanner Ridge

The acrid smell of the composting facility below is  ever-present at our home on Tanner Ridge.

On, August 12, on our return home at about 5 p.m. the odour was shocking, to say the least.

The pungent smell (apparently reported by our neighbours to have been present throughout the day) hung in the air until well after 7 p.m.

I am all for efficient use of agricultural property but the owner of this facility must be held responsible for either finding a way to eliminate this offensive odour in compliance with the CRD’s Bylaw No. 2376 — or the facility should be shut down.

Two years is long enough for patience, a solution needs to be found now.
