Dickson County officials plan to put nearly a quarter-million dollars into the dump.
The County Commission voted Nov. 18 to borrow $248,000 to pay for improvements to landfill operations, according to documents from the county clerk’s office.
The unanimous vote on a resolution authorizes the county to issue capital outlay notes up to that amount. The purpose of the notes is to finance acquisition of equipment for the Solid Waste Department.
The department is in line to get a sanitation road truck, a landfill trash container, a “pull around yard truck” and a pickup truck, according to the resolution.
The commission also unanimously approved capital outlay notes for other planned expenditures, including a 1996 Freightliner L70 fire tanker truck for the county Emergency Management Agency.
Altogether, the commission’s votes add up to $330,365 in new debt authorized.
