Waste station hours expanded during burn ban

Members of the Franklin County Commissioners Court ordered the hours of the county’s solid waste transfer station be expanded while the current ban on outdoor burning continues.

An increase in illegal dumping, including larger furniture and house hold items along rural roadways and creeks at bridges prompted the action. See the August 16 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for a listing of days and hours the waste station will be open.
