HOLLIS — Something smells bad in Cleburne County, and residents who live along County Road 805 near the unincorporated community of Hollis are raising a stink about it. 

JDS Septic Service earlier this year opened a treated sewage disposal facility which processes fats, grease and human waste from septic tanks, according to owner Joey Sprayberry. The odor from the disposal process is wafting in the summer breeze to nearby residents, who claim it’s causing upper respiratory problems and decreasing the quality of their lives.
