Thanks Scott and WWAY for reporting in-depth about this issue. The entire situation of NHC's landfill was a hot topic way back before R3 was awarded the contract, so naturally there remains an elevated level of interest in the outcome.
While other news outlets have passed along press releases and reported on missed deadlines (or extensions), WWAY appears to be the only group that understands that at least some of their audience wants to know more. WWAY is not giving up after an unsuccessful phone call or two, and I'm looking forward to knowing what more they find.
While maybe we all should have known that what R3 proposed was too good to be true, my concern is that the prospect of cashing in on their forfeited bond and waving goodbye to R3 may also turn out to be too good to be true.
Finally, if that does turn out to be resolution then I respect the commissioners for protecting our interests to that extent. Re-reading GBB's press release reminds me that there was considerable upside for the county if R3 made good on their proposal, and there could have also been considerable downside for the county if the commissioners hadn't managed the risk as they did.
