Brownfield grant use disputed

MUNCIE -- The city's brownfields steering committee was questioned 
Wednesday night about its decision to make the former American Lawnmower 
factory and the former Car Doctors auto salvage yard top priorities for 
assessment and investigation.

The city has received a $230,000 grant from the U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency and another $30,000 from the state to identify, 
assess, investigate and develop cleanup plans for local brownfields -- 
blighted properties that may be contaminated with hazardous chemicals.

In addition, the Exide automotive battery recycling factory in Muncie 
has agreed to spend $92,320 on a brownfield project as part of a 
settlement of air violations at the plant.
