Mayor, Trustees Concerned About Garbage Facility

August 29, 2012
A controversial waste transfer station proposed for the old Mid-Continent site on County Road 100 was the subject of a lengthy discussion at Tuesday night's Carbondale board of trustees meeting. Around 45 people were in the audience for hours of public comment.

Both the board and the public expressed concerns about the potential for fire, for water contamination and for traffic issues both in town and out the other direction. KDNK's Eric Skalac spoke to Carbondale mayor Stacey Bernot after the meeting about her concerns and about the town's limited role in the approval process.
