County commissioners on Tuesday raised questions about a proposal to privatize garbage disposal, but heard little that would dissuade them at this point from inking a $20 million agreement with the operator of a landfill in neighboring Sumter County….ACMS has offered Marion County first crack at the initial cell, which will cover about 30 acres of the site, and charge the county $8 a ton….”I don’t really care about the environmental liability because it’s not in Marion County,” Chairman Stan McClain said. “That’s why we went out of Marion County — because we didn’t want to site a landfill here. e_SLps The environmental side of this will be taken care of.”
