Cortland residents mull lawsuit to halt county landfill expansion
CORTLAND – Cortland residents could decide Tuesday whether to sue DeKalb County on the township’s behalf in a final attempt at stopping a proposed landfill expansion.
Cortland resident Frankie Benson is urging fellow residents to come to the Cortland Lions Club Shelter on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. to weigh in on whether the township should pursue a lawsuit against the county for approving a landfill expansion in the town despite the township’s official vote against it.
Benson said a state statute appears to prevent county leadership from usurping a township’s authority when it comes to trash disposal in town limits, but it has never been challenged in court.
