Construction should be underway as early as today at the AEO (Advanced Enviornmental Options) facility off N.C. Hwy. 120 in community known as Six Points. The project was halted near the end of March pending the approval of a watershed permit. Danny Searcy, planning director for Rutherford County, said although there is no legal reason that the watershed permit would not be approved, two other plan details for the project must be provided before the company gets the go-ahead.
Spring has arrived in Rutherford County and this weekend there are several events and fundraisers scheduled for residents wanting to get outdoors and explore the warm weather.
There are also various activities planned indoors for those looking to learn new things or support a great cause.
In addition to responding to multiple motor vehicle crashes and routine medical calls over the weekend and on Monday, firefighters throughout the county were busy extinguishing flames and assisting other departments with fire calls.
The Rutherford County Board of Education (BOE) and the county commissioners will discuss facilities during a special joint meeting tonight.
