SPSA Proposes $99 Million Budget for 2008

Date: May 24, 2007

Source: News Room

The Southeastern Public Service Authority emerged from months of internal debate over how to cut costs with a budget that instead calls for an 11% increase in spending to $99 million next year. The plan does call for eliminating numerous jobs and other expenses but also seeks to decrease reliance on debt to finance its environmental programs. Instead, the money will come from an anticipated revenue increase of $12 million from higher tipping fees. The authority announced last month that beginning July 1, it would begin charging $100 per ton for waste to its six city and county members, up from $75 currently and $57 last year. Additional funds could also come from selling the authority's waste-to-energy plant in Portsmouth.
