Albany -- Dougherty County may hire a consulting firm to study the landfill. The Public works committee recommends spending 34 thousand 600 dollars for the study.

The committee wants to hire R.W. Beck consultants to look over their landfill. The study would evaluate the efficiency and cost effectiveness of their entire solid waste operation.

 Solid Waste Director Michael McCoy said "This is the ideal time to take a look at ourselves and make the necessary adjustments in order for us to be competitive. To be prepared for unforeseen changes in the market."

 Dougherty County has never had it's landfill operations evaluated. The whole commission will vote to pay for the study in their Monday meeting.
