LANCASTER - Garrard County Fiscal Court tabled second reading of a solid waste management ordinance Wednesday when magistrates complained that they hadn't been given revised copies of the proposed law.
Judge-Executive E.J. Hasty said magistrates should have been given new copies to look at before the meeting, reflecting changes requested last month.
Bill Hack, Garrard County solid waste coordinator, said the new ordinance is needed to bring county regulations in line with those recommended by the state. The ordinance will reflect some price changes and will make the convenience center less of a financial burden on the county.
"What this will do is stop the losses and get a fairer deal for the county," said Hack, who cited examples of contractors who dump construction waste for the same price that individuals drop off smaller bags of trash.
