At a public hearing by the board of county commissioners Oct. 3 in Pioche, the proposed ordinance for host fees at disposal sites within Lincoln County was read.

Based on the gross tonnage of solid waste received at the landfills within the county, the host fees, as proposed by Commissioner Adam Katschke, are five cents per ton for Class III, and Class I and II will be 50 cents per ton. The ordinance was approved unanimously. Commissioner Paul Mathews was absent.
