What it Means

The Progress-Index Weekend - - FRONT PAGE -

Is­sue: Af­ter feed­back from Tri-Cities res­i­dents that the Tri-City Re­gional Land­fill con­tin­ues to emit up­set­ting odors that reach their homes and busi­nesses, Del. Lashrecse Aird (D-63rd) and her aides are in­ves­ti­gat­ing whether new leg­is­la­tion could help rem­edy the is­sue.

Im­pact: On­go­ing odor is­sues af­fect the qual­ity of life of many area res­i­dents, but there is lit­tle ex­ist­ing reg­u­la­tion of land­fill odor. Aird seeks to de­ter­mine if state law could be an ef­fec­tive tool to min­i­mize land­fill smells.
