EPA prosecutes Ballinasloe Town Council

On 6 September 2006 the Environmental Protection Agency prosecuted Ballinasloe Town Council at Ballinasloe District Court.  The Council pleaded guilty to the failure by them to ensure that odours did not give rise to nuisance either at its facility at Pollboy, or in the immediate area of that facility.
On hearing details of the offence from an EPA inspector, Judge Michael Reilly imposed a fine of €1,750 and the EPA’s costs of €10,104 were also awarded.
