SOUTH WHITLEY BUSINESS: Grain dust kicks up concerns

March 13, 2013

SOUTH WHITLEY — Blanche Kilander, a South Whitley resident, came to the town council Tuesday to express a health concern she felt was coming from a business in town.

Synergy Feeds LLC, 401 N. Main St., is a business which processes corn for animal feed and operates in partnership with Ag Plus.

Kilander told the council the grain elevator kicks up dust and has aggravated a breathing problem for her husband, Mike, 66.

A petition was presented to the council asking the business to reduce the amount of dust produced from the elevator.

“My husband can’t even go outside his own house,” Kilander said. “He’s on oxygen and I have four V.A. doctors who will tell you his breathing problems come from this elevator.”

Jeff Mize, CEO of Ag Plus, said Kilander has never approached the business with her concerns.
