Northwest City Council says NO to landfill

READ MORE: Northwest City Council says NO to landfill
NORTHWEST -- With standing room only, residents stood strong and spoke out about the proposed landfill. "We do not want the landfill. Why are we still debating?" a resident shouted. Developers with C&D landfill answered their questions hoping to convince the crowd that a construction debris landfill off blue banks road would not harm the land. Then it came down to the council vote. Three issues were on the table: zoning the land to industrial use, a petition to annex the land and a request to rezone property owned by seaside resorts for other uses. The vote was close. Council voted three to two on all of them. Victory sums up the mood in Northwest. The community won another battle to keep a landfill out of their neighborhood.
