Allegany County is retaining an independent attorney to investigate a dump that’s irking residents on Fleetwood Drive. The dump site is owned by a county employee.
County Attorney Bill Rudd sent a letter to Del. Kevin Kelly on June 17 outlining the county plans. Kelly has led the charge for neighbors seeking a resolution to the dumping issue. Neighbors have been fighting the problem for a long time. Correspondence by neighbors with county officials about the issue goes back to 2004. The residents contend the current use of the property violates zoning codes. The dump includes construction materials but also other refuse, neighbors say.
