Legislators discuss pending litigation

by Carol Thompson

At the conclusion of Tuesday’s meeting of the Oswego County Legislature’s Infrastructure and Facilities Committee meeting, legislators entered into executive session to discuss pending litigation in the matter of JWJ vs. Oswego County.

Jeffrey Holbrook, owner of JWJ, Inc. is reportedly pursuing his case against the county in the matter of the Flow Control law that was passed October 2008.

The law mandated that all construction and demolition waste generated inside the county had to be disposed of within the county.

Holbrook sued in federal county, claiming that the new law would put him out if business if he was forced to dump within the county boundaries.

He won the case with the judge ruling that the county’s law is unconstitutionally vague.
