The Lincoln Parish Police Jury has been dealing with nearly 12,000 tons of woodwaste at the landfill that they have been trying to get rid of, and at Tuesday night’s Police Jury Solid Waste and Recycling Committee meeting, members moved forward with the plan to remove the waste. Jurors decided that seeking proposals to see who can remove the waste at the best cost was the best way to enact the removal.
Richard Durrett with Waggoner Engineering, who was hired to consult with the jury about the woodwaste removal, gave his final report and recommendation to the committee at the meeting.
