The Richmond County Board of Commissioners will discuss approval of a 10-year solid waste disposal and recycling agreement, when it meets Monday.
The board will meet at 5:30 p.m. on April 8, on the second floor of the County Administration building in the Commissioners’ Chambers, at 221 S. Hancock St. in Rockingham.
During the March 4 regular meeting of the board, the commissioners awarded the bid for solid waste disposal and recycling services to Republic Services, based on a 10-year agreement at a quote of $21.20 per ton.
The board is now being asked to approve the 10-year contract between Richmond County and Republic Services. The contract has been reviewed by the county attorney.
In other matters, the county board is expected to:
• Hear an update on the voluntary agriculture district program by Agriculture Advisory Board Chairman Tommy Peacock.
• Consider authorizing Richmond County 4-H to apply for a $1,000 Foundation for Richmond County grant.
• Receive monthly updates from Richmond County Manager Rick Sago and Richmond County Director of Planning and GIS James Armstrong.
• Review requests by Tax Administrator Vagas Jackson to reschedule the date for 2013 Equalization and review meeting, and authorization to advertise tax liens on real property for unpaid taxes.
• Designate April 2013 at National County Government Month.
• Proclaim April 13-17 as “Spring Litter Sweep” in Richmond County.
• Designation the week of April 14-20 as “National Telecommunictors Week.”
