The garbage debate didn't come up during Monday night's Lauderdale County Board of Supervisors meeting, but the issue is pressing for the men who continue to get heat from constituents on both sides of the issue.
Looking at the numbers, Mike Sumrall, county administrator, says the county would save several hundred thousand dollars a year with curbside pick up.
"The basic numbers with the low bidder, us doing the billing and them providing the containers, we would save about $300,000 a year and that would have to go towards the deficit that we currently have. We are currently in the red somewhere 1.3 or 1.5 million dollars," said Sumrall.
Sumrall says if the county moves ahead with the dumpster system the county will have to purchase new collection equipment. It isn't known when the county will take a vote on the issue.
