Earlier, halfway in to Veolia Incorporated's first year, the firm had requested changes to its contract that would cost the county an additional $160,000. Veolia had claimed it had run into additional expenses from some unanticipated issues in the countywide curbside recycling program such as servicing of alleyways and some rural areas.
The issue will come back before the board this Tuesday, October 2nd. But since it appears on the committee-of-the-board agenda, the county board will not take any formal action. County Administrator Duane Hebert said any formal action would be taken up at the board's October 9th meeting.
