LASALLE, Colo. (AP) - A renewable energy company that has had its odorous factory shut down is suing the Weld County Commissioners over their decision to revoke the factory’s permits.

The Tribune of Greeley reports (https://bit.ly/2iIyxk9 ) that Heartland Biogas has filed a lawsuit against not only the board, but also the five commissioners individually, arguing they didn’t get due process before the commission shut their LaSalle factory down.

The Weld County Commission held public hearings starting in July after neighbors complained of the smell coming from the Heartland factory. On Dec. 19, commissioners concluded Heartland had broken almost 10 state and county rules, including air quality regulations, and revoked the company’s operating permits.

The company filed the lawsuit Tuesday in U.S. District Court.

County Attorney Bruce Barker says officials cannot comment on the case.
