Public callers reported this pile of commercial and demolition waste to the Free Press from a house torn down on North Cedar in Marion by Seacat Hardware, where County Commissioner Dan Holub works. The waste was placed in an old trench silo on land Holub?s mother owns along 240th. County Sanitarian Bobbi Strait said the trash placement is approved as legal temporary storage by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. Holub said he allowed the placement to benefit Seacat and the community in an effort to begin building spec homes along Cedar while waiting on an approved disposal hauler that will get rid of the C&D waste at half the price of other methods. He said the three homes planned are two-bedroom ?starter homes.?
