Solid Waste Authority seeks support from state lawmakers

August 26, 2011

BROOKVILLE — The Solid Waste Authority of Jefferson County is hoping to make some headway with local lawmakers in its quest for funding.

Donna Cooper, solid waste/recycling coordinator, wants to schedule a meeting with state Rep. Sam Smith and state Sen. Joe Scarnati to update them on the authority’s funding status.

Since losing its administrative fee, the authority has been trying to stay afloat.

For 2011 drop-off donations, $11,208 has been committed, and the authority has already received $10,708 of that money. Last year, the authority received only $8,450.
