Real Property : Zoning – Landfill Construction – Sufficiency Of Hearing

Where appellants challenged a county commission’s amendment of land use regulations to allow the construction of coal-ash landfills, the judgment in favor of the county commission and utility is reversed because the trial court erred in dismissing the claim that the commission failed to conduct a legally sufficient hearing since the public was not allowed to speak about the landfill proposal.

Judgment is reversed and remanded.
