In their meeting Tuesday, the Bond County Board heard from Kim Taylor of Fayco, who reported that Fayco had signed a two-year contract with the City of Vandalia, allowing them to continue providing pickup service for recyclable materials. That would extend to the Bond County facility on Highway 40 near the Greenville Veterinary Clinic, however, as has been speculated recently, the pick-up service would come with a fee. Taylor estimated that fee to be approximately $100 per pickup, which is done, on average, once a week. The board asked Taylor to come to their next meeting with a proposal.
The board reviewed bids that had been received for the county and city’s animal control facility project. All three bids received were higher than officials had hoped for. All were rejected and it is expected they will seek bids again in the near future.
Billy Herington was approved as a resident commissioner on the Bond County Housing Authority Board, the resignation of Billie Jo Allen from that board was approved, and Mark Bleyer, William Ahern, and Matthew McCullough were each approved as members of the Bond County Board of Health.
