City, closed landfill agree to settlement




The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A settlement was reached Wednesday between Cincinnati and a landfill operation that was ordered shut down by City Council in October.

        Gray Road Fill Inc. has agreed to limit its hours of operation, apply for new permits and provide a buffer zone to residents living near its Winton Place site.

        Company officials have also agreed to drop a lawsuit against the city for shutting down operations after dozens of residents complained that the landfill was growing four times larger than permits allowed.

        Residents, who have been fighting the landfill for more than a decade, called Wednesday's compromise a victory, but said they were disappointed council waited so long to act.
