Friends of Lackawanna Appeals Keystone Sanitary Landfill's Zoning Decision

Accusing the Dunmore Zoning Board of bias, abuse of its discretion and errors in legal judgment, a grass roots group (Friends of Lackawanna) fighting Keystone Sanitary Landfill’s expansion plan appealed the zoning board’s decision that the landfill is not subject to the borough’s 50-foot height restriction.

“They got it wrong, and they had to ignore the law to (come to that decision),” Friends of Lackawanna attorney Jordan Yeager said. “We’re dealing with a powerful landowner who is used to getting his way. We expect to get a more fair hearing in the courts.”
