Members of the Rogers Road community aren’t the only Orange County residents up in arms over the list of sites for the proposed county waste transfer station. The Herald-Sun reports that the Hillsborough Waste Transfer Station Advisory Committee will tonight present to the Town Board a list of recommendations to take to the County Board of Commissioners upcoming work session, recommendations that include asking the commissioners to slow down the selection process and consider additional sites.
Mayor Pro-Tem Mike Gering tells the paper that most residents did not learn that two of the proposed sites were near Hillsborough until just before a public hearing last month, adding:
This [transfer station] process has gone way too fast. We’d like to see a thorough analysis done of these sites, and we just don’t see any way that this can be done.
The Orange County Board of Commissioners will revisit the waste transfer station Oct. 21. A map of the proposed sites can be found here.
