Officials in Northampton County are going to hear from the public about a potential landfill expansion.

Lower Saucon Township will hold a meeting in September about the IESI landfill on Applebutter Road.

There was also heavy public opposition due to noise and odor concerns but township council has the ultimate word on the matter.
