cost of $1,698.00. Afterwards, revenues generated from the cardboard balers would be

used to off-set cost of the balers until paid in full. Funding is available in the FY07
Capital Improvement Project Budget to be transferred to the Warfield Convenience

Center line item to cover the costs associated with the purchase of these two units.

additional cardboard baler and a transfer, in the amount of $1,698.00 from the FY07

Capital Improvement Project Roanoke River Regional Business Park – Waste Water

Plant Upgrade to the Solid Waste Facilities–Warfield Convenience Center Budget.

balers for a total of $18,000.00 since funding is available.

the Board approved the purchase of an additional cardboard baler and a transfer, in the
