East Moline, hog waste capital of the midwest?
Love the Triumph Hog plant? Enjoy dumping on anyone who voices any skepticism about it?
Word is already out that Triumph is approaching landowners in the Erie and surrounding areas about contracting them into becoming mass hog lot contractors. Factory farms, hundreds of thousands of tons of hog waste and massive pollution problems.
But those who stand to profit ram this through, short-circuiting regulatory requirements and environmental studies.
East Moline mayor Thodos should be henceforth known as "Boss Hog".
