People are concerned that reopening Keegan Landfill will make the flooding worse.When is the next meeting on this matter???The DEP and the NJMDC already know about the flooding problems. There is no going around this we need answers.

Not only will re-opening Keegan make the flooding worse, the entire financial aspect of the plan is grossly inadequate. After 10 years of dumping there won't be nearly enough money acculated in the escrow account to close the landfill properly. And the liability for closing will now be the Town of Kearny's solely. To then do this job the right way will require a tax increase of epic proportions.

The Mayor's plan for re-opening Keegan will impair the quality of life for the residents in the vicinity, lower property values for homeowners throughout Kearny when we reclaim our title as "Garbage Capital of the World," and lead to multi-million dollar deficits as early as Fiscal 2006.

And the saddest part is that viable alternatives exist but have never even been considered.

Who should we contact the EPA,Governor,DEP ??Is there going to be a meeting on this?If the Mayor and the NJMC know about the flooding why would they do this ?I own 2 houses in this area so the Mayor will let property values get lowered? Money Money thats what it is all about..... The residents who flood will have it worse something is WRONG.
