The proposed plan is available for public inspection beginning August 25th, 2022, at the following locations during their normal business hours:

Additional information about this plan is available from Mike Wilson, Boone County Solid Waste Coordinator (859) 334-3629.  Anyone unable to review the plan at the above locations may call and request that a copy be mailed to them. 

Any person wishing to comment on the plan may do so by providing comments no later than close of business on the 30th day of the public notice, to the Boone County Fiscal Court at 2950 Washington St, Burlington, KY 41005.  Any person wishing to be heard at a public hearing must make a request via telephone, fax, email, or written communication to the governing body identified above, no later than close of business (COB) on the 25th day of September.

A public hearing is scheduled on September 26th, 2022, 10:00 A.M. to receive public comments on the plan. The hearing will be held at the Boone County Courthouse. However, if no request for a public hearing has been received by September 23rd, 2022, the hearing may not be held. 

The Governing Body will respond to written public comments within 15 days of the close of the public comment period and will consider the plan for passage at the September 27th, 2022 fiscal court meeting.  The plan, if approved, will then be submitted to the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet for review and approval.
