Maury County Passes Resolution On Landfills

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, Tenn. (AP) - Maury County officials have approved a resolution that bars landfills from locating near the Duck River.

The proposal stemmed 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 continued.

County commissioners voted unanimously on Monday night to approve the measure.

The vote came after at least two dozen residents voiced support for the measure.
