The 109 Board is reducing the amount of tax that residents will be charged for solid waste disposal.
Officials to vote on reducing solid waste tax

When the 109 Board – the entity in charge of solid waste disposal for the county –meets on Tuesday, it will make a decision on whether to reduce its tax, officials say.

Rusty Newton, chair of the 109 Board, said he is confident the proposal will pass, thus reducing the current .034 cents per $100 of property valuation to .030. At the same time, the board is expected to increase the price being charged for people to dispose of trash, from 3 cents to 3.5 cents per pound, he said.
