August 8th Elections

The Record-Eagle reports that in addition to a contest for District 2 county Commissioner Republican candidate between incumbent Mark Walter and Michael Anton, next Tuesday’s primary elections feature a ballot measure for a proposed $29-per-household fee over the next five years to pay for and expand the county’s recycling program. According to the article:

The seven existing recycling drop-off sites, household hazardous waste collection and electronics recycling are funded through a 50-cent surcharge on landfilled waste. But county officials said those revenues haven’t kept pace with the program’s $275,000 annual price tag.
