This is predictable. No oversight by elected officials. A bunch of rubber stamp clowns appointed by cronyism are supposed to be making sure the rules are followed.

It's like asking the fox to guard the hen house.

Commissioners are just sitting back and doing nothing while the garbage heap grows. What about David Meers and Bryan Jenkins when do they plan to get off their butts about all the garbage thats coming here?

Just curious. Does anyone know how long the land fill is expected to stay open under current plans?

The dump group has spent the last few years buying up land near the landfill. Google state data appraisals. My buddies say that plans are underway to expand with enough land for 100 yeears. Sort of depends how much garbage the dumpees bring in. Thats what I heard at the Loudon Hardees, much better source than the Useless Harold.

We'll see if county commission asks real questions or just nod their heads at the half-assed explanation the clowns on the waste commission want to offer up.

There is a ten year record of non-compliance. Ten years of putting the needs of Santek ahead of the laws of the state and the welfare of the citizens.

That idiot Harrison has been on commission for many years. Send him down the road.

Not down the road, how about some jail time, didn't you see his name in the newspaper and grand jury report?
