IWP Landfill Closure
The Dillon County Council received seven bids on the IWP Landfill Closure at a called meeting in April. R.E. Goodson was the low bidder at $525,800. An allowance of up to $140,000 in additional costs is allowed if they have to haul from the borrow pit. It was stated that permit submission of the finale 5-acre site of the Old River Road pit has begun. The goal was that the closure of the IWP would begin around the third or fourth or April. The county is saving money by using their own borrow pits and equipment. This total is well under projections for a few years ago. The motion to accept the low bid subject to the review of its compliance of bid specifications was by Councilman Joe Johnson, seconded by Councilman Bobby Moody. All approved.
