Charges dismissed against septic installation company

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - The Trumbull County Board of Health dismissed charges against a septic tank installation company Monday, the company's lawyer said.

An independent hearing officer recommended the Trumbull County Board of Health to dismiss charges against Berry Meadows and his company Digging Dirt LLC.

In a 23-page report Friday, the officer wrote that the board of health should decide Meadows and his company did not commit the violations asserted and dismiss the charges.

In the report, the officer wrote that not allowing Meadows to present testimony during a hearing last year was a violation of due process. 

Prior to the hearing, Meadows and his wife, represented by attorney David Engler, filed a constitutional rights violation lawsuit against the board of health, Trumbull County Sheriff Thomas Altiere, and others in a case scheduled for March 20.

A representative from the board of health could not be contacted at the time of this report.
