The Bartholomew County Solid Waste Management District has extended a contract with Rumpke Indiana, LLC to operate the landfill on County Road 450 South.
Our news gathering partners at "The Republic" report that the contract, which was scheduled to expire in January, has been extended for an additional three years. Under the contract, the county pays Rumpke to operate the landfill, and then Rumpke pays the county for the trash it dumps at the landfill. The newspaper reports that the company is the biggest customer of the landfill.
The BCSWMD board met Thursday and agreed to the extension.
Columbus Mayor Kristen Brown is a member of the BCSWMD board. At her urging, the district paid $25,000 to Indianapolis accounting firm H.J. Umbaugh and Associates for a financial analysis in order to get a better understanding of the district's finances.
