By JOE GONZALES

Recently, TCEQ, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, fined the City of Littlefield for violations discovered at its landfill.

The violations were discovered during investigations conducted between February 15th through February 28th, and reported to the city back in April.

The penalty assessed to the city was in the amount of $68,775.

But, Littlefield City Manager Mitch Grant said the city has taken steps to correct all issues the city was fined for.

“The original fee we were fined was $68,775, but there is a chance we are able to get that fine down to $44,100,” he said. “If we do what TCEQ asked, we can do that.”
