Extending the Life of the Landfill in Shawnee

On Monday, 2/28 the city council will consider extending the life of the landfill here in Shawnee so that it would close in 2043 instead of 2027.

The planning commission has voted to recommend approval for this action. More info is available here:

It's nice to know that we are number one in something. The largest landfill in the midwest.
More info on that is here:

Should the landfill be kept open another 16 years? Some say yes, some say no. If you live in Shawnee you might want to consider showing up Monday night and voicing your opinion.
