DODGE-- The Attorney General's Office filed an application today
in Webster County District Court asking the Court to issue a temporary
injunction barring Dodger Enterprise Co., Tire Chop, Inc., and Donald
Grell from accepting any more waste tires at their storage and processing
facility in Fort Dodge.
On September 21, the State Environmental Protection Commission affirmed action by the Dept. of Natural Resources to revoke the defendants' solid waste permit and deny their application for a new waste tire management permit. The EPC action cleared the way for the Attorney General's Office to ask the Court to issue a temporary injunction barring the defendants from accepting more tires while the lawsuit proceeds, and ordering the defendants to remove and properly dispose of all accumulated tires at the site.
