Some good news for now, quoting a message I got on the facebook group "Nevadans Against Garbage":

"As each of you know, Bob Dolan and Massey Mayo appealed the Regional Planning Commissions 2/11/10 extension of the conditional use permit to build the Jungo Landfill before the HCC at 1:30pm today.


All of the questions I have, and I'm sure many of you will have, I don't have the answers to(what are the next steps, should we still work on the NAG agenda items (see email from last night), will the election initiatve go ahead.....will Recology appeal?). I will keep following up on our group page. I would say let's follow up on supporting Senator Reid on the USGS study do-over and share any fund-raising ideas you have.

BUT FIRST....stop and savor the win!

Bob and Massey have done all of this legal work on their own dime and time. It is so appreciated. Please take a minute to thank Bob and Massey via fax, email, phone...kind words or fabulous gifts and prizes!

That is great news about the dump. That area is one of our favorite detecting spots. We live about 50 miles south of there and went up a few weekends ago. We might have won against the dump BUT... Nevada Lands did a land sale at the beginning of the year and sold a section just west of the eugene mountains and south of Jungo rd. When we were there, there were 4 little shacks set up about a 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile apart and trash and crap everywhere. It looked really bad. And i was told there is nothing anyone can do until the county sets ordinances. It was a great nugget spot.
