Residents ready to fight WWTA at county commission Wednesday

OOLTEWAH, Tenn. (WDEF) — A room full of Ooltewah residents organized one last time before going in front of county commission Wednesday.

They do not want WWTA to build a waste water plant off Mahan Gap Road near Highway 58.

County commissioner Chester Bankston informed the meeting they will have 45 minutes to make their case to the commission Wednesday.

Those who attended the meeting are encouraging all citizens to not interrupt those 45 minutes with applause or noise.

“This is a valuable part of the county, and the growth that they’re dependent upon for the future of Hamilton County is in our backyard,” said Brent Smith, vice president of North Hamilton County United for Responsible Growth. “We would rather have the growth in our backyard than a sewage plant.”

Smith says they have a five pillar plan to present to the commissioners.
