The city held a meeting last night to lay out several options to stop harmful chemicals from seeping from the old landfill.
Tests show six residential wells along Bell Town Road have already been contaminated.

When he arrived, he reportedly found 44-year-old Sean Norton holding his wife Cynthia at gun and knifepoint in the middle of the road.

Goodson says Norton also was drinking while police tried to negotiate with him.
As heavily-armed deputies and state troopers arrived, they cordoned off the area and kept nearby residents inside.
Finally, after nearly four hours of tense negotiations, Norton released his wife and then surrendered himself.
