The Chair for the DeWitt County Board calls the recent settlement with the Clinton Landfill a huge victory.
County Board Chair David Newberg outlines the details of the agreement and points out both parties left something on the table. He says the two big points of emphasis are the host fees being restored and the Landfill withdrawing it's application to store toxic waste at it's facility.
The financial implications this agreement, while significant, is not a fix-all. According to Newberg, the County was facing some drastic cuts, this can help alleviate some of that pressure.
Newberg was pleased an agreement could be reached with one of the County's largest employers and looks forward to continuing to renew and restore their relationship.
