At the September 4, 2001 East Point City Council regular meeting, Council passed resolution on an alternative site for yard waste disposal.
"Now, therefore, let it be resolved that the City Manager is directed to pursue the designation or acquisition of an appropriate plan for yard waste disposal for Council approval in the next 90 days."
"Be it further resolved that the City Manager shall begin immediately after the above date (90-days) the process of reclamation of the property known as Center Park back into a community park."
This resolution has never been upheld. This site is still being dumped in not only by the City of East Point but by private contractors. This operation has to stop and Council needs to get the City Manager moving with this resolution.

This land has been used as an Inert Waste Landfill for many years and we "the Citizen's of East Point, Georgia" want this operation stopped. This landfill in its present state is operating against the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Environmental Protection Division, Chapter 391-3-4-.06 (Solid Waste Management) rule.
The City of East Point has not provided any permit applications, Notification of Permit By Rule Operations, monitoring reports (391-3-4-.17), inspection reports or any other demonstrations of compliance of Chapter 391-3-4 (Solid Waste Management).
