(Port Angeles) -- Garbage was the big topic at last night's Port
Angeles City Council meeting, as city officials discussed the landfill bluff Cell Stabilization Project.
For over ten years, there has been concern with bluff retreat and erosion, migrating into the landfill facility. Recently, erosion has exposed garbage from a retired cell along the bluff and raised fears garbage will fall into the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
The city has hired a consultant that has come up with five recommendations to deal with a seawall in the area. Right now, the city recommends an option that would cost up to $20 million dollars to move some of the old garbage and make improvements to the seawall.
The city council is expected to come up with a final decision on the bluff fix March 19th.
