The Henry County Supervisors had planned to receive bids on the solid waste proposal for county rural residents today(Thursday). However, a decision was made to table the acceptance of bids for the contract. The original request for proposal will be amended and republished. The tonnage numbers used in the R.F.P. were not the numbers the haulers needed to write a proposal. Plus, the two local haulers interested in the contract told the supervisors this morning (Thursday) that all their other contracts are based on a flat monthly rate. So the R.F.P. will be changed from a tonnage rate to a flat rate. The supervisors may also consider including a fuel surcharge.
In other business….Klay Edwards and David File were appointed to the Henry County Loan Review Committee and in 2012 Kent White will serve as the Chairof the board of supervisors. Gary See will act as vice chair.
