Commission plans hearing

Jackson County Plan Commission will consider a request this week for a special exception from a timber management company to operate a logging operation in Vernon Township.

According to an application filed by Tony Trier with Eagle Timber Management, the special exception would be for an eight- to 10-acre site at 3512 E. U.S. 31, Crothersville. The property is owned by Rumpke of Indiana LLC, 10795 Hughes Road in Cincinnati.

The site, which was once part of Rumpke’s Uniontown Landfill, would be used for storage, processing and the resale of logs, according to public records. There will not be a sawmill.
