BURNSVILLE, Minn. — A controversial landmark could be coming to the south metro. 

Burnsville City Council plans to consider a landfill that would be taller than Buck Hill on Tuesday. 

An existing landfill and dump located along both sides of I-35W would merge, creating one big landfill located in an industrial area near the intersection of I-35W and HWY 13.
With a proposed vertical height of 362 feet, people would be able to see it a city away in Bloomington. That's where JC St. Onge-Holm lives. She has a long list of concerns, including the possibility of property values going down.
