Packet and LAKE report @ DSSWA 2021-08-18

The Deep South Solid Waste Authority (DSSWA) had a bit of difficulty rustling up a quorum, but then they approved everything from the agenda, in a 26-minute meeting, reports Gretchen Quarterman, who attended remotely via webex.

Earlier yesterday, they sent the rest of the board packet, which is now on the LAKE website:

DSSWA Agenda 2021-08-18

Update 2021-08-19: Packet and LAKE report @ DSSWA 2021-08-18.

The Deep South Solid Waste Authority (DSSWA) in some vague sense oversees the landfill in Lowndes County. As near as I can tell, it mostly disburses grants to its member counties and cities, derived from fees on the private landfill operator.
