County approves new garbage franchise agreement

Merchant reminded the board that there are a couple of members of the Holmes County Development Commission that have resigned.

“It’s nothing we need to do right now, it’s just something we need to consider and bring the names to the next meeting,” said Merchant. “Shirley Hawthorn’s term is up but she has volunteered to continue serving on the board.”

The board approved of reappointing Hawthorn and agreed to bring names for potential new members at the next scheduled meeting.

Malinda Pollock with CDG Engineers came before the Board to request a Landfill Permit Modification in efforts to save the county up to $7,000 a year.

“It is to change the gas testing from quarterly to annually,” said Pollock. “This will drastically reduce laboratory fees and should save you up to $7,000 per year.”

Board approved of the Landfill Permit Modification in the amount of $3,200.

Commissioner Bobby Sasnett asked how many years were left on the permit and Pollock replied that in 2010 there was 25 years left.
