EXETER â€“ The old 4.35-acre municipal landfill, located off Rt. 102, west of the Exeter Town Hall and once in danger of becoming a federal Superfund site, is the subject of a no-holds-barred pre-election controversy.
Dan Patterson, a Republican, has sent out a mass e-mail to key party members, contending that a request from DPW Director Steve Mattscheck to purchase a specialized piece of equipment for mandated twice-yearly mowing of the landfillâ€™s grassy cap would be onerous on taxpayers.
