KDHE Returns Landfill Application to Galena

KSAL StaffAugust 11, 2015

The Kansas health department has returned Galena’s application for a landfill permit because it doesn’t meet state requirements.

The Joplin Globe reports the Kansas Department of Health and Environment told Galena Mayor Dale Oglesby recently in a letter that the city’s landfill application can’t be processed because it lacks the signatures needed from county government officials.

Oglesby said Monday the KDHE action was expected.

The Galena City Council approved plans for a landfill in 2014 but rescinded them after widespread opposition. Oglesby then presented the application to county commissioners in April and requested the county provide information for it.

But Richard Hilderbrand, chairman of the county panel, told Oglesby the landfill proposal did not meet the county’s trash plan, which states no more dumps should be created.
