BRIDGETON, MO (KTVI)– As a judge decides the future of a troubled Bridgeton Landfill, community members feel like they’ve been left in the dark about the process to clean-up the site.
The Missouri Coalition for the Environment joined affected community members Monday, who don’t believe the state and republic services, the landfill owner, have been transparent enough while trying to reach a settlement.
Home owners and businesses have been dealing with a bad odor for months, due to an underground fire at the landfill.
The attorney general’s office and republic services met before a judge Monday afternoon.
He is reviewing the proposed settlement and will rule Tuesday on what the state can do about the landfill.
The attorney general is also expected to make an announcement on the case Tuesday.
