Yesterday at the Brooke Hancock Jefferson Metropolitan Planning meeting, Commissioner Thomas Graham spoke briefly saying that commissioners are thoroughly opposed to another landfill in Jefferson County.

While commissioners don’t have a say in the matter, with the decision being up to the EPA, Dr. Thomas Graham wanted to make their opposition known. This comes as organizations such as the Jefferson County Health Board, the Jefferson Soil and Water Conservation District, and Steubenville Council stated their opposition.

The commissioners meet Thursday morning at the Jefferson County Courthouse at 9.
