Landfill expansion foes ponder next tactic
DeKALB – A potential injunction against Waste Management could present the latest delay in landfill and jail expansions for a DeKalb County Board that is not as united behind the projects as it had been.
The county will not face a lawsuit from Cortland Township, which instead could seek an emergency injunction against Waste Management, said Frankie Benson, organizer of the Cortland Township legal fight. A judge would be asked to interpret a statute that could give townships more authority over county governments in landfill decisions, Benson said.
The township voted against the landfill expansion before the county approved it.
