(Neb)-SWANN Budget Leaves Rates Unchanged Listen
CHADRON - The board of SWANN…the Solid Waste Agency of Northwest Nebraska…has approved a $1,753,000 budget that leaves rates unchanged, provides a merit raise for qualifying workers, adds a new collection truck, and should still produce a $24,000 surplus.
Board vice chairman and Gordon City Manager Jacob Sheridan says the budget is a testament to the hard work of executive director Jack Nemeth to get the most bang for the buck today while setting aside funds for large purchases.
SWANN rates went up this year for the first time in 9 years and just the fifth time since the agency began collection services in 1995.
SWANN provides landfill services for Dawes, Sioux, and Sheridan Counties, the incorporated communities in those counties, and the village of Hemingford.
It also provides garbage pickup for Chadron, Gordon, Rushville, Hay Springs, Clinton, Whitney, and Harrison while private haulers serve Crawford and Hemingford.
