On Tuesday, July 24, the Washington County Supervisors approved driveway paving and north fence replacement at the Washington County Recycling Center, following a report from Lynn Whaley of WEMIGA Waste System, which operates the county-owned facility.

The contractor is Coleman Construction of Winfield, which submitted a proposal to remove and replace existing concrete, bore new postholes for the fencing and install new posts in a concrete base for $445,511.

The chain link fencing cost is $8,440 and already is in the current budget. Work will be done in September, the board was told.

In other business, the board:

Work continues on the 275th Street bridge decking, as well as on 229th Street (G36) and Coppock Road (W47). There also have been positive public comments about the Riverside Road project.
