Valerie Foushee, chairwoman of the Orange County Board of Commissioners, responded to our transfer station question (about whether the county might revisit the Eubanks Road landfill as a possible site.)
"At present, the county has not changed its course of action regarding the siting of the transfer station," she writes. "That is not to say that during the course of budget discussions for FY 2009-10, the costs for the siting, construction, and the cost of transporting solid waste out of the county will not lead to a revisiting of sites that were previously ruled out."
About 50 residents attended a meeting with solid waste director Gayle Wilson Sunday night in White Cross. Read a report on the meeting in tomorrow's Chapel Hill News.
