Zorra Council Releases Information Backgrounder on Southwestern Landfill Proposal

Mayor Marcus Ryan today released an information backgrounder outlining the Township’s role in the review of Walker Environmental Group’s Southwestern Landfill Proposal.

As the potential host municipality to what would be one of the largest landfills in Ontario, Zorra Council has been highly engaged from the outset and continues to work with stakeholders to ensure a fair environmental assessment process.

Mayor Ryan remarked “Through our ongoing efforts with the Joint Municipal Coordinating Committee and the hard work carried out by previous Councils, our residents have had the benefit of a fulsome review of work carried out to date. The Peer Review team will now provide an unbiased and thorough review of the draft environmental assessment report that will allow Zorra Council a full understanding of the proposal. Throughout this process a full public consultation will be undertaken, just as we have in the past, until such time as Council is ready to take an informed position on the proposal.
