Council Oks Fertilizer Plant Expansion Projects

A new fertilizer plant within the Fairbury city limits has been given the go-ahead for operation.

Following a public hearing on Tuesday in which no testimony was heard, members of the Fairbury City Council gave the unanimous approval to the Aurora Cooperative to allow agricultural chemicals and fertilizer storage and distribution from their new location at 2222 L Street, located directly behind Canning Truck in Fairbury.

Included in the project will be the planned construction of five 30,000 gallon storage tanks. According to Aurora Coop officials the area was properly zoned for an anhydrous ammonia facility, but that plant will be located approximately six miles north and one half mile west of Fairbury.

Fourth ward councilman Phil Rogge said he supported the expansion noting that the project is safe and does meet all the criteria for an agricultural plant.
