City Dump's Future Limited: Ypsilanti's city dump, located north of the US-12 Expressway and east of S. Huron St., may be closed to non-city users in the near future unless a solution to the city's future rubbish disposal problem is found soon. The city is negotiating with the Ford Motor Co. about a possible expansion of the dump area to the east (right, above). "Nobody's happy" with the present dump operation, City Manager Olaf R. Pearson said in outlining plans to secure a new sanitary fill site, possibly to serve both the city and Ypsilanti township.
