At the Emery County Commission meeting on Tuesday, Kent Wilson, Wade Williams and other citizens discussed the current landfill tippage fee implementation and draft amended tippage fee resolution.
In 2009, a $15 fee was decided for a ton of rubbish. The citizens that live the furthest from the landfill will be impacted the greatest.
“It’s money that’s not currently budgeted,” Ferron Mayor Trent Jackson commented. “If they don’t appoint someone to take the lead, it’s just going to be swept under the rug.”
