Well it is bothering residents and children who do live, work and go to school near the dump. The dump itself was not supposed to be permanant and has not only become an eyesore to the area but has also affected the health of local residents, dump workers and children. It has and will continue to effect the value of our homes and cause an negative impact on local busineses. Our town should not be relying on garbage for its quota. They should be looking into making cuts, and stopping over spending. Now that the sludge is gone thousands of dollers have been cut, why is the cut being made now, why was there money beeing needlessly spent prior to this. The fact of the matter is the dump can not and will not be here forever and we need to find other ways to avoid raising taxes.

You should get your head out of your ass!!! The dump hurts the people that work there?? What kind of a nonsense statement is that? The dump employs a ton of people who very much like working there and by no means are sick. Hey I have an idea, let's just not have any landfills or recycling plants in Suffolk because people that work near them think it's an eyesore or smells bad....let's just send all our garbage to Nassau or better yet stick it on a huge rocket in fantasyland and blast it up into space...I'm sure that wouldn't cost taxpayers anything. And another thing...if your gonna write a long story about how much you hate garbage, learn how to spell. "dollers"?? I guess you really are from Shirley.
