Citizens’ Landfill Expert Witnesses Prevail

Yorkville, IL residents called their own expert witnesses to fight landfill developer Fox Moraine LLC’s plan for a landfill on the city’s southwest side. Fox Moraine argued that properties near the facility would suffer no serious harm. After hearings, Yorkwille aldermen voted 7 to 1 against the plan. Aldermen Golinski described Fox Moraine’s landfill expert witness as “unconvincing.”

Many of the city officials have questioned Fox Moraine’s safety measures, its traffic plan and its compliance with Kendall County rules, which ban landfills within city limits says the BeaconNews Online.
