The Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority has rejected a controversial plan to increase the height of the Hartford landfill by another 50 feet. The board, seeking to restore its battered public image, decided that the expansion was not worth the cost and public effort. The landfill will now close in three years. The agency is trying to build public favor as it recovers from a failed deal with Enron that cost it $220 million in public money. The agency has been forced to recover the money by raising fees on its member towns.
