(Audubon) The Audubon County Landfill commission has made a response to the Board of Supervisor’s letter of intent to withdraw.
Audubon County Supervisor chairman Todd Nelson told KSOM/KS95 news in February that withdrawing from the landfill may bring significant savings to the county. At the supervisors meeting this week, the board asked for an official response from the landfill commission.
“We approved a letter that said we wanted a response by Friday, it was time to bring this to a conclusion. And we put on our agenda for next Monday to consider their response,” Nelsen said, “And I think the letter said if we didn’t get a response we would proceed with withdrawal. They had already been working on a response and had it ready and now we have that response to consider Monday.”
The response from the landfill commission is a 37% per capita reduction for all entities which would save the county approximately $25,900. That figure is still short of the $68,635 that the county would like to eliminate.
“There would be advantages I still feel like there would be more savings to be had by withdrawing but the disadvantage is the effect that has on the remaining members and the conveniences that the transfer station offers so we’ve got to decide.”
The board of Supervisor’s next meeting is set for 9:00 a.m. Monday morning.
