Florida state senator asks county to take a stand on controversial landfill

This morning, the Pasco County Board of Commissioners met to discuss the landfill application of Angelo’s Aggregates — a controversial proposal that was denied in the past and could damage environmentally sensitive lands. State Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey, spoke to the commission to address his concerns, imploring them to take an official stance on the permit to send a message to the state Department of Environmental Protection. #

Fasano, who recently met with Environmental Protection Secretary Herschel Vinyard to discuss his concerns with the landfill, told the commission that the landfill proposal is not only environmentally unsound, but ultimately unnecessary. #

“Sen. Fasano spoke about the resource recovery plant that the county has operated for many years,” says Greg Giordano, Fasano’s chief legislative aide. “It has a long track record of successfully incinerating and turning the waste into energy. The operation of the plant makes the need for the landfill unnecessary.” #

The senator also encouraged the county commission to take an official position on the proposal. According to Giordano, Fasano believes the commission needs to take a vote to send a clear message of where it stands on the landfill issue. #

At one point during the Tuesday morning meeting, county attorney Jeffrey Steinsnyder remarked that it was his opinion that the county believes a land use amendment is required to go forward with the landfill, while Angelo’s does not. The land is currently zoned as “agricultural.” #

The commission also made clear that a comprehensive plan would have to be amended to accommodate the landfill. #
