The schedule change closes the Scale House and Yard Waste Area one day per week (Thursday) and will result in an estimated savings of $2,330 for the remainder of the current fiscal year that ends on June 30, 2017.  The schedule change is not anticipated to negatively impact utilization of the site based on a review of the public use of the service by county staff.
