Minooka Resident Asks Board Members to Help With Noisy Neighbor
The recycling plant behind Heather Ridge subdivision in Minooka is in violation of ordinances and will be back in court in three weeks.
"We've had nothing but problems with noise," he said. "It's a garbage dump back there."
Zazzette appeared before the Minooka Village Board members Tuesday night.
"I'm not the only one who can be complaining," Zazzette said. "There's dozens of residents that border that property."
First American Metal came into the village in June 2008 and the village has been battling problems since then.
"They are definitely in violation of our ordinance," Minooka Village Manager Dan Duffy said at the meeting.
In a later interview, Duffy specified that the company was in violation of at least 10 village ordinances.
Prior to coming to the meeting, Zazzette tried to buffer the issues on his own.
"I spent probably $1,300 on evergreens to screen my berm, because I did not want to look at the trucks back there," he said.
Minooka Village Attorney Marty Shanahan said First American Metal will be back in court in three weeks.
