* A near 10 year legal battle between the Town of Carroll and those who want to build a 50-acres landfill in the town appears to be over. The NYS Supreme Court Appellate Division - 4th Judicial Department - unanimously sided with the Town of Carroll and ruled that the landfill operated by Jones-Carroll, Inc. and its potential buyer Sealand Waste could not expand into a 50-acres non-putrescible landfill because of zoning and public safety regulations.
