The Interior Department wants to charge people for protesting in the nation’s capital.
SENECA FALLS, Oct. 8, 2018 — A three-member majority of the Seneca Falls Town Board instructed town attorneys today to immediately begin a rigorous legal defense of Local Law 3, which requires Seneca Meadows Inc. landfill to close by December 2025.
The action comes less than a week after the state’s largest waste dump floated a plan to extend its lifetime by 12 years — until 2037 — in exchange for a hefty boost in host community payments to the town.
The landfill’s plan, which had the support of Town Supervisor Greg Lazzaro and Deputy Supervisor Lou Ferrara, was spelled out in proposed resolutions that the town board was set to vote on Oct. 2.
But Lazzaro yanked them from the agenda that afternoon after the three other members of the five-member board said they didn’t like the landfill’s offer.
Those same three — Douglas Avery, Vic Porretta and Dave DeLelys — insisted today that town attorneys turn their effort toward defending Local Law 3 rather than negotiating behind the scenes.
