HILLSVILLE — Only one member of the regional Solid Waste Authority board voted against including funds for economic development measures in the landfill’s 2014 budget.
Josh Hendrick, Carroll supervisor and representative on the authority, questioned the practice of the SWA financially supporting efforts of the Wired Road, the regional broadband project.
The issue came up Friday during the authority’s regular meeting. This is the second time in two months that discussion of the Wired Road funding came up.
