Georgia County To Appeal Landfill Decision

Meriwether County Commissioners have decided to appeal a judge's ruling allowing the development of a landfill in their Georgia county the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports. A Senior Superior Court Judge threw out the county's Water Supply Watershed Protection Ordinance when the county could not produce the map the ordinance refers to or even provide any proof that such a map ever existed. The county had denied permission to build the landfill, citing the ordinance.
