County Judge Tom Mosely told the quorum court, during their latest session held on March 21, that the county needed a resolution passed enabling them to contract with Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality and fulfill the financial obligation of closing the landfill.

Mosely said the county had been looking at a $1.7 million price tag to close the landfill, but after working with Deputy Director of SEAEDD Shane Knight and Currency Bank the county was able to find a less costly solution.

Mosely said the county had received a $200,000 line of credit from the bank, and the cost of closure was lowered significantly from the nearly $2 million to $186,000.
