Statement from Bristol Virginia on U.S. District Court ruling January 3, 2023

Posted on January 3, 2023 at 2:15 PM by Joey Lamie

The City of Bristol, Virginia is very pleased with a federal district court ruling that orders mediation in the ongoing and costly litigation between the two cities related to odor problems at the Bristol Quarry Landfill. Bristol, Virginia remains focused on remediating the odor issues as work on the landfill continues through close coordination with the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality. The city has consistently argued that spending more time and money in court only delays productivity and progress, and the Court recognizes the taxpayers of both cities are bearing the cost of this expensive litigation. Today’s ruling is particularly important given that the mediation is provided at no cost by the court. Bristol, Virginia looks forward to working with Bristol, Tennessee to resolve the litigation between the parties in order to rebuild trust between both cities so that we may continue to work together to serve the whole community.
