Public Hearing on Cortland Co. Landfill Dec. 6 at 6 pm

The public will have a chance to review the pros and cons of selling, leasing or expanding the Cortland County landfill at a public hearing set for 6 pm Dec. 6 at the County Office Building auditorium.   A Cortland Standard editorial (Oct. 25, 2010, p.5)  lists some of the things the citizens and the county government should consider in making this decision including control, truck traffic, liability and cost containment.   A further consideration is what materials might be brought to the landfill now that industrial gas drilling is a reality in PA and possibly in NY.
