5/5/2015: Next Landfill Zoning Hearing Scheduled

The next hearing on the Friends of Lackawanna zoning challenge against Keystone Sanitary Landfill’s proposed expansion is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, May 14, at the borough building, code enforcement officer Joseph Lorince said Tuesday.

The anti-expansion grassroots group last week rested its case, arguing that the plan would violate a height restriction in Dunmore’s zoning ordinance, among other points. Keystone’s legal team will make its case that the nearly half-century expansion proposal is consistent with the ordinance at the next zoning board’s next hearing.
