Panel To Discuss Resolution On Landfills

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, Tenn. (AP) - Planning officials in a Middle Tennessee county are set to discuss a proposal that would bar landfills from locating near the Duck River.

The proposal under consideration by the Maury County Planning Commission stems from a request in August by two companies to create a landfill on 845 acres near the river. Although the companies withdrew their application for a zoning change in September after it sparked public opposition, controversy over the issue continues.

County attorney Daniel Murphy submitted a resolution to Maury County planning commissioners that would bar landfills from locating within two miles of the center of Duck River.

Commissioners are scheduled to discuss the resolution at their November 19 meeting.
