A resolution to permanently close the Branson Recycle Center was voted down by aldermen at their board meeting Tuesday night.
Information had been presented to aldermen several weeks ago on the costs of the center to the city. According to the report, it would cost the City around $265,000 annually to reopen the center and operate it as before.
Many individuals spoke out in opposition to the closing and therresolution was eventually voted down by all five aldermen.
It was also announced that Taney County officials are looking into the possibility of taking over the program and are expected to discuss it at next week’s County Commission meeting.
