In a surprise move, the Los Angeles City Council postponed its vote Tuesday on a controversial expansion of the Sunshine Canyon Landfill into Granada Hills, giving opponents of the project more time to gather support for their cause. Even die-hard opponents of expanding the landfill, which owner Browning-Ferris Industries wants to enlarge from its current 216 to 710 acres, had expected the project to be approved overwhelmingly by the council to meet waste needs for the future.

The county Regional Planning Commission voted Wednesday to deny a new permit that would allow the county and city sides of Sunshine Canyon Landfill to operate as one dump. The final decision, which Browning-Ferris Industries is likely to appeal to the Board of Supervisors, means the landfill will continue operating under separate permits and conditions. Panel members voiced concerns about the lack of deadlines for closing the landfill and about its negative impact on traffic.

Setting the stage for a potential clash with the Los Angeles City Council, the Board of Public Works voted Friday to include the owners of the Sunshine Canyon Landfill in negotiations for a long-term city trash disposal contract. The decision angered some San Fernando Valley council members who oppose doing business with Browning-Ferris Industries, the owners of Sunshine Canyon, because they say it is uncertain when or if the dump will reopen.
