Starke County Commissioners Review Lease for Solid Waste Building

The Starke County Commissioners reviewed a lease for the Solid Waste Building on the grounds of the Starke County Highway Department to the Solid Waste District. 

Last year the commissioners approved funding to build the building on the property at the highway department so the Starke County Environmental Management Agency can better police what recyclable items are being deposited in the recycling bins. 

With that process in full swing now, Starke County Attorney Marty Lucas drew up an intergovernmental lease for the consideration of the commissioners to lease that building to the Solid Waste District for $526 per month amortized over 10 years.   

The commissioners approved the intergovernmental lease as presented with a unanimous vote. 

The lease will now go before the Solid Waste Board members for review and approval.
