Last Night The group Citizens Against Toxic

supervisors for months to adopt an
ordinance that would ban the use of

They say sludge poses serious

citizens deserve more rights than
corporations.

But many area farmers say there's
no solid proof of the health risks, and
banning biosolids will only expose the

The board ended up approving the
least restrictive ordinance that only

Board members said the more

held up in court, but they'll continue
to work through state legislators on
controlling the use of biosolids.
