Re: “Puyallup raising fees to cover settlement” (TNT, 1-13).

I see where the Puyallup City Council voted 5-2 for the citizens of Puyallup to pay increased landfill fees to pay off the $2 million lawsuit agreement.

The records clearly showed that there were problems with the landfill prior to the building permit being issued in 2004. Maybe it’s time for the state to investigate this landfill problem to ensure no profits were made on the backs of our citizens, especially since building permits have already been issued for more housing close to the same landfill.
