      The Dougherty County Commission discussed the financial condition of the Dougherty Landfill Monday morning.

      The landfill employees 17 people with about 250 acres .

      The budget for this year is about $3 million dollars in expenses, and about $3.3 million dollars in revenue.

      County officials anticipate a net income of about $300,000.

      They expect to end this year with about $700,000.

      Officials say this is nothing but good news.

      County Administrator says, "we've been fortunate that our revenues have exceeded our expenditures and our expenditures have actually been reduced and our operating expenditures which we're glad to be able to do."

      The landfill is a user free operation, but what you're paying for is the weight of the amount of waste you leave at the landfill.
