County Approves Solid Waste Authority Budget


The Windsor-Essex Solid Waste Authority is one step closer to passing its 2020 budget.

On Wednesday night, Essex County Council approved the authority’s budget which calls for a 4.1% increase. 

Manager of Finance and Administration, Michelle Bishop says the increase is needed to ensure the authority balances its books by 2027.

A rate hike of 4.1% was approved in 2019 as well. 

Approval is still needed from the City of Windsor to move forward.

City council is expected to discuss the authority's budget in late January.
