Two nights after citizens showing concern for the possible closure of the county's convenience centers packed the Newton County Historic Courthouse for a board of commissioners meeting, a similar showing by Newton County residents was present during a meeting of the Solid Waste Authority (SWA).
The Newton County Solid Waste Authority (SWA) was granted the legal ability to work on the county's solid waste stream after the board of commissioners (BOC) approved an intergovernmental agreement on Tuesday between the authority and the county. The SWA will vote on whether or not to approve the agreement at its own meeting Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the Newton County Historic Courthouse.
