For those who have been following the action in Seneca Falls around the adoption of proposed legislation, which would limit future solid waste disposal facilities – as well as current facilities – Tuesday’s meeting of the Seneca Falls Town Board will be a testament to the process.
It’s been long, challenged, and filled with discussion and debate over the future of Seneca Falls. A future that will be spent dealing with side-effects of adopting, or not adopting, a local law.
Adopting the proposed Local Law No. 3 would mean a limit on municipal solid waste facilities in Seneca Falls. It would also close force Seneca Meadows to close by December 31, 2025.
According to landfilling opponents, failing to adopt a local law like the one posed this time around puts Seneca Falls in a vulnerable position in the long-term.
Local Law No. 3 of 2016 succeeded the hotly-contested Local Law No. 7. Opponents of the municipal solid waste disposal legislation say that passing such legislation “Sends the message that Seneca Falls is not open for business.”
