ROCHESTER – The State Appellate Court in Rochester has upheld a 2016 Chautauqua County Supreme Court Decision involving the expansion of the county landfill in Ellery.
On Nov. 1, 2016, the Hon. Frank A. Sedita ruled in favor of the 53-acre expansion that would extend the life of the landfill located within the town for another 20-30 years. The Town of Ellery appealed that ruling, and the appellate court in its decision affirmed the original ruling.
The decision by the appellate court, released on Friday, means the landfill expansion can continue to move forward, despite opposition by the town of Ellery, which is the hosting municipality.
