“Having received the decision of the New York State Supreme Court, County of Chautauqua, on the matter of the Chautauqua County Landfill phase 4 expansion, I am pleased to see that the court has ruled in favor of Chautauqua County,” said Chautauqua County Executive Vince Horrigan. “Our professionally managed and environmentally sound landfill operation benefits every taxpayer in the county while maintaining low tipping fees to support our businesses and homeowners. The expansion project will now proceed which will extend the life of the landfill for 20 years while remaining well within the existing county-owned property boundaries. There will be no change in the permitted waste volume.”
