BOLIVIA—Members of the Brunswick County Planning Board voted five votes to two last Thursday to deny the county’s request to expand its construction and demolition landfill near Bolivia.

After months of hearings, which included testimony for and against the proposed landfill expansion, board members denied the county’s request for a special exception permit to expand the current construction and demolition landfill.

The county can appeal the decision to superior court, apply again after one year or find a different location for the landfill expansion.
