Commercial Brush Leon told the committee that
it was costing the county approximately $22.00 per ton for the operation of the

84% of the waste, with the private sector at 16%. Leon will
find out what the labor and equipment costs are for the
operation of the brush pile and report back. A motion was made for Leon to make recommendations to the BOCC for charging for commercial brush at the Solid Waste
Facility, fees will be determined according to what Leon finds out from the
report. The motion was seconded and passed. A motion was made not to charge
for woodchips brought into the facility. The motion was seconded and passed.

the last round for the Implementation Grants until more funds are available.

info and directories to those citizens signed up. Julie will get a cost to add
