San Juan Capistrano and Orange County Negotiate about Revenue Shares and Landfill Routes

San Juan Capistrano, a city in Orange County, Calif., is currently negotiating with the county to receive a bigger share of the county’s revenues and to open up other routes to the Prima Deshecha Landfill, which would reduce the number of garbage trucks traveling through San Juan to get through and from the landfill.

The City Council held a meeting on April 5, but San Juan council members deferred a vote on whether to join other Orange County cities in approving a new waste-disposal Agreement. The City Council will meet again on April 19 to discuss these matters.

The Orange County Register has the details:

The city is negotiating with the county’s waste-management agency, looking to get a bigger share of county revenues and fewer impacts from trash-truck traffic.

City Council members said they want the county to open up other routes to Prima Deshecha Landfill to reduce the number of trash trucks plying through San Juan on their way to and from the county landfill off Ortega Highway.

“We are being asked to bear the brunt,” Mayor Pam Patterson said at the council’s April 5 meeting.
