Public Hearing Scheduled Monday At Mayville City Hall For Landfill Expansion

(Mayville) Mayville residents will have the opportunity to give their input on the proposed expansion of the Glacier Ridge Landfill. A public hearing is scheduled Monday from 3pm to 8pm at City Hall located at 15 South School Street. Members of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will be present to answer questions. Mayville has been opposed to the 100 foot expansion of the landfill and roughly 500 residents have signed a petition against the move. Mayor Rob Boelk says there are serious health concerns that are not being taken into consideration such as methane odor and ground pollution that could lead to future problems. The DNR states that the landfill could survive only seven more years without expansion.
