Leaders in Perinton are unhappy with the slow work by Waste Management at a landfill.

In a letter to the Town Board, members of the Conservation Board expressed dissatisfaction with odors at the High Acres landfill that have frustrated neighbors for more than a year now.

Earlier this month, code enforcement issued a compliance order to Waste Management, advising the company that it's in violation of its special use permit.

Leaders say if Waste Management cannot successfully complete all mitigation tasks by April 30, the town should request additional regulatory steps to deal with the odors.

In January, neighbors demanded tough action to deal with the foul smells.
