As KRC has often done during our 35-years of advocacy, we are proud to join with and to work alongside private counsel - in this instance, representing citizens of Powell County in challenging the issuance of a "less-than-one-acre" construction and demolition debris (CDD) landfill issued by the Energy and Environment Cabinet to Blaze Enterprises LLC.
KRC drafted the Amended Petition for Review, outlining the grounds for challenging the issuance of the permit, which include a more broad-based challenge to the distinction in the Cabinet regulations that allow landfills of less-than-one-acre to avoid many of the procedural and substantive protections that would be required were the landfill one-acre or more in size.
The administrative permit challenge is been placed in abeyance while KRC and private counsel assist in defending a Powell County Ordinance establishing a local siting process for solid waste facilities that is being challenged by Blaze Enterprises.
