For those wondering about the origins of a strange odor emanating recently from Decorative Panels International, or DPI, Alpena City Mayor Matt Waligora gave an explanation at the Alpena City Council's most recent meeting (June 7th).

Waligora, who was in contact with DPI officials, said that the smell was due to moving biproduct waste near the back of the facility. The product had been there for several months and, in the process of drying the waste to move it, a stench was created.

Officials say that they are on their way to removing it and the worst smelling product is gone. The ground where the product was sitting will be neutralized and hosed down.
