The County’s aging infrastructure creates health and safety issues for County employees and the public, while
the cost of replacement will continue to rise each year consistent with the global market for materials and the
regional cost of labor. The County’s conservative approach to building these essential service delivery assets will be
characterized by little or no increase in taxes, saving money in current and near term budget cycles, seeking a variety
of funding sources, and closely managing construction costs. Further, these foundational facilities will be the core
assets required to meet the demands for service from a growing population of residents, businesses and visitors for
many years to come.
By 2019, Grand County Residents will understand the opportunities of the
alternatives for environmental management of proper waste disposal/recycling
through an assessment of cost effective alternatives.

• Based on previous BOCC discussions regarding overall Strategic Plan prioritization.
Little work has been completed for this Strategic Result PRIOR to BOCC providing
clear direction on their priorities.
• Opening up an additional landfill, transfer station, etc. has potential risk due to
current partnership by the two (only) trash service providers. Must have company
willing to partner with County. Deadline of Dec. 2018 is very aggressive.
• Pull all information and studies previously conducted by Grand County when this
was previously a County action item. R&B staff completed a new landfill site and
transfer station site location analysis.
• On Hold: R&B previously completed a new landfill analysis and feasibility in 2008. At the time and due to county wide
tonnage of waste produced, the project was not financially viable. However, this analysis need to be updated based on
today’s population and disposal costs.
• Waiting for more Information
• On Hold: Plasma burner costs were obtained in 2018 and initially found to be cost prohibitive due to the low tonnage
of waste produced in Grand County. Plasma burner would need to be a Regional solution. Need to explore Summit
County’s 2030 Plan and other partnerships.
• On Hold: Initially completed in December 2017. Need to update the assessment and include The Fraser Drop.
• In Progress

If you have any input or suggestions for the overall results, strategies, or action items for this specific strategic result - please provide your input here. I have also provided a section for input on the entire strategic plan itself. The Manager's Office and the BOCC are hoping to either reprioritize or at the least simplify this plan, your input would be helpful in doing so.
