County landfill officials are considering the possibility of combining the two joint powers authorities that oversee the landfill into a single entity.
Agency manager Kristina Miller said a consolidation effort could save money due to the duplication of paper work and staff time from working with two separate entities.
The Tehama County Sanitary Landfill Agency is a joint powers authority comprised of Tehama County and the cities of Red Bluff, Corning and Tehama.
Its primary functions are to fund the closure and post closure of the Phase 1 landfill, meet state recycling regulations and oversee grant programs.
A second joint powers authority comprised of only the county and the city of Red Bluff is known as the Landfill Management Agency. It was formed to manage and oversee the landfill.
