Raymore Kills Kansas City Landfill

Tonight we gather news on the topic of trash talk and our neighbors.

Here's a garbage agreement that works out nicely for those in the sticks. However, this still leaves local politicos looking for a space to dump to much of this town's junk. 


"The agreement calls for Raymore to pay the developers, South KC Acquisitions and Kansas City Recycle & Waste Solutions, $3.29 million. In return, the developers will stop plans for a landfill on the land and impose restrictions on the future development of the land they own.

"Those restrictions limit the land to agriculture, residential and light commercial uses.

"Raymore has the option to purchase roughly 12 acres of land from the developers for $440,000 to build an extension of Madison Street. The extension would connect Raymores Creekmoor neighborhood directly with Highway 150.

"The proposed landfill site is south of Missouri Highway 150 between Peterson and Horridge roads. 155th Street is the southern border of the project site.

"Raymore Mayor Kris Turnbow called the settlement worthwhile. He said the settlement payment will come from what is essentially the citys savings account and will not impact city services."
