Disposal of solid waste fees; Russell County. Allows Russell County to levy fees by ordinance, and after a public hearing, for the disposal and management of solid waste at a county collection or disposal facility not to exceed the actual cost incurred by the county in procuring, developing, maintaining, and improving the landfill and for such reserves as may be necessary for capping and closing such landfill in the future. The bill adds Russell County to the list of counties permitted to use fees to purchase equipment and grants Russell County the same authority that Accomack, Highland, Pittsylvania, Southampton, and Wise Counties have regarding collection of such fees. This bill is identical to HB 1186. Read the Bill »
