Crematory planned for Ulysses

Olney Funeral Home is seeking regulatory approval to construct and operate a crematory next to its facility in Ulysses Borough. Some local residents have expressed concerns about air emissions.

A third-party crematory operator is involved in the plan. The facility requires an operating permit from the Pa. Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP). DEP regulates the operation of human and animal crematories. Operators must meet air quality and work practice standards.

Review by the Potter County Planning Commission and Ulysses Borough Council is also required.
