FAIRBANKS - More than $1 million in new funding is being considered by the Fairbanks North Star Borough Assembly for the next phase in a landfill project to comply with state and federal regulations.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports the project includes two major parts: sealing sections of the landfill and building a line that circulates moisture through the closed sections.
The first phase of the three-year project was completed during the summer and cost about $6 million.
On Thursday, the assembly moved forward with two sources of state funding for the project. The rest of the funding comes from tipping fees paid by municipalities and other customers.
