It budgeted $3,500 for the service.<br /><br />The board briefly considered just paying the money it budgeted. Ultimately, the board tabled the bill until the finance committee has a chance to contact the WIRC.<br /><br />Chairman David Walker thought the bill might have gone up.<br /> Mon, 27 Feb 2012 18:36:38 +0000 James Lenz 10897 at http://tspr.org Board and Agency Disagree on Recycling Cost
