Braxton Solid Waste Authority Receives SWMB Grant

Twenty-nine local Solid Waste Authorities (SWAs) including Braxton County’s Solid Waste Authority will receive grants totaling $399,500 as a result of action taken by the Solid Waste Management Board (SWMB) at their meeting held in Charleston, on late last month.
Braxton County SWA has been awarded $15,194, the fourth largest amount given to any of the 29 counties. Locally, the funds will be used for wages, utilities, insurance, and rent.
The counties receiving higher grant awards were Calhoun County – $16,675 – for wages, educational conference, insurance, utilities, and fuel, Barbour County – $15,500 – for insurance, fuel, and wages, and Morgan County – $15,200 – for hauling fees, educational conference, and an audit.
