Am glad to see someone is calling for immediate action. There does not appear to be any outrage by the Johnston Mayor or the Town Council. Have heard nary a word by Johnston elected officials They should be screaming and demanding action instead all the property owners received was a letter from RIRR stating they are working on the problem. With the millions of dollars in revenue that the landfill generates, there is NO way Johnston should be subjected to the awful foul reteching rotten egg smells that prevents us from the most minor yard cleanup such as raking leaves.
