Tide Turns Over Controversial Landfill, Fox 26 News

~As posted by FOX 26 News

It’s been a brutal four year battle to block a proposed landfill near Hempstead, but it looks like opponents of the 700 acre dump could register a solid, but temporary win.

A new slade of Waller County leaders confirmed that they are poised to give out a six-figure  settlement in the wake of a jury verdict that stated that the administration had cut secret deals about the dump, in violation of transparency laws.
