Chattooga County Sole Commissioner, Blake Elsberry, says he was notified that the company the county was using for the environmental testing at the old landfill was going to be increasing its prices this year.
Elsberry decided to shop around for the best price. The company with the best price and service was Advanced Environmental Management, Inc. The county had previously contracted with this company.
“We were going to be paying around $40,000 per year, with the new contract we will pay around $23,000 per year. That is a savings of $17,000 per year with a total savings of around $68,000 over the next four years,” Elsberry said.
