Attleboro Councilor to Host Meeting on Landfill
The session will take place at Bristol Community College on Sept. 19.
Attleboro's Ward 4 residents will learn more about the plan to cap the landfill on Peckham Street, at least from the point of view of City Councilor Jonathan Weydt, at a session planned for Sept. 19 at the local Bristol Community College campus.
Weydt represents Ward 4, an area where thousands of trucks would travel six days a week over a three- to four-year period if a version of the capping plan approved by Mayor Kevin Dumas (it is the only version known to feature his signature, but he recently said it's not his first choice) becomes a reality. Weydt recently criticized the plan in a commentary that appeared on Patch. Dumas called the piece "political grandstanding."
"This meeting will provide us with the information on a proposal that would impact us all in several ways," wrote Weydt in a letter to constituents about next week's session. "I urge Ward 4 residents to attend and get up to speed on this very important issue."
Weydt wrote that the session would include a PowerPoint presentation as well as time for questions and answers.
Bristol Community College is located at 11 Field Road. The session is scheduled to begin 6:30 p.m.
