Mayor Damien Ryan is not saying whether the public has been informed about the Town Council's current negotiations for land to expand the rubbish tip in its present location, and if so, when and how that disclosure was made.
The negotiations were reported by the Alice Springs News Online as discussion is resuming about shifting the landfill from a location where it will be in the middle of the town, given its growth pattern.
