The first phase of a contested case hearing regarding Republic Waste's proposed waste transfer station in east Parker County will be held Wednesday, March 10 at 10 a.m. in the Aledo Community Center.
Republic Waste applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality for a permit to build the Waste Transfer Station on Nu Energy Drive between Bankhead Hwy. and I-20 in 2008. The TCEQ ruled that Republic has met all technical requirements to be issued a preliminary permit.
Because of the proposed facility's proximity to Aledo High School and athletic complex, as well as proximity to other educational outlets, residents and public officials have protested the location of the facility. Parker County Judge Mark Riley, the Aledo Independent School District and the City of Aledo have all fought the application, so far to no avail.
The Wednesday hearing is the next step in the process for those who oppose the waste transfer station.
Cold job: In the snow and cold, a crew for Texas Gas Services conducted regular maintenance repair on a natural gas line in front of Aledo City Hall. The work has caused the natural gas service to the Aledo Community Center to be shut off. However, Lori Moreno with Texas Gas Services, said the crew is working to repair the line in time for tonight's Economic Development Corporation (EDC) meeting at 7 p.m. at the center.
Parker County Sheriff's Department: Mark Gregory Owens, 44, of Aledo received a life sentence for child molestation following a jury trial in Weatherford on Feb. 16.
A 44-year-old Aledo man with a prior conviction for indecency with a child was sentenced to life in prison for molesting a 2-year-old girl in a trial that ended Tuesday morning, Feb. 16, in Weatherford.
A Parker County jury found Mark Gregory Owens guilty of the Halloween 2008 aggravated sexual assault of a child and possession of child pornography.
Jurors assessed the maximum punishment of 20 years in prison for the pornography case and confirmed that Owens was previously convicted of a sex offense, which resulted in Visiting Judge David Cleveland assessing the life sentence mandated by law.
