Livingston County Catholic Charities (LCCC) has joined with Genoa Township and Marion Township to oppose variance requests pending before the City of Howell Zoning Board of Appeals. If granted, the variances would allow a massive new industrial auto shredder to be installed in direct contradiction to the current zoning ordinance.

“Installation of this industrial car shredder, the first of its kind in Livingston County, will degrade and diminish the quality of life for area residents and vulnerable adults who use our treatment services, and now they want to circumvent the zoning ordinance,” said Mark Robinson, executive director of Livingston County Catholic Charities. “That is why we have joined with Genoa and Marion Townships to oppose variance requests that will give special treatment to the shredder.”

A letter with details of the objections supported by LCCC, Genoa Township and Marion Township was filed recently with the Howell zoning board. You can read the letter by clicking here.
