Jubilant North Valley residents said the county's decision not to eliminate the on-site inspector coupled with efforts to adopt a similar program when expansion begins into Los Angeles city limits relieved a major concern.
``I'm excited, this is excellent for the community,'' said Kim Thompson, who lives near the landfill. ``It's exactly what we wanted. It's great news.''
