(WXYZ) - On Monday, the New Haven City Council unanimously voted to rescind an agreement with Rizzo Services about a proposed landfill that was supposed to be built between 27 and 28 Mile roads.
Angry Macomb County residents sounded off about the landfill at an informational meeting last week.
Some of the officials for the Village of New Haven said the landfill was needed to help get them out of debt because Rizzo Services would have paid New Haven some of the revenue.
Residents were worried about the repercussions of the landfill. One of the residents that had survived a kidney transplant told us he was worried about side effects from the proposed landfill.
“This stuff they could be bringing in here way to close to my house could make her a widow and make my kids be without a father,” said Phil Hey.
The Village of New Haven passed a host agreement back in July with Rizzo Services to support bringing in the landfill.
