KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The City of Kalamazoo is expected to put some skin in the game as they support community efforts to get the EPA to clean up the Allied Paper Dump, and not just cover up the contamination.

Commissioners will be asked tonight to approve 160-thousand dollars for any legal bills and for the services of former Utilities Director Bruce Minsley, who has retired and become a private consultant. 

The money will come out of the Water Fund budget’s reserve. The contaminated site is adjacent to the city’s main water well field.
