Issues over how to share costs of funding a new municipal landfill, which threatened to turn into a war of words between Big Spring and Howard County officials, have not been resolved, but an encouraging sense of cooperation was evident following a meeting between representatives of the two entities Wednesday.
Big Spring Mayor Tommy Duncan and County Commissioner John Cline, along with City Councilman Marcus Fernandez, Commissioner Jimmie Long and several city staffers, met to discuss the potentially divisive issue.

However, many residents will be faced with the prospect of what to do with the leftover trimmings and other waste, a problem which can quickly translate into dangerous situations and work for local firefighters, according to Big Spring Fire Marshall Carl Condray.

Howard County commissioners will hold a special meeting Monday to discuss the fallout of Tuesday night's meeting of the Big Spring City Council, which had Commissioner Jimmie Long going toe-to-toe with Mayor Tommy Duncan regarding fiscal support from the county in the opening of a new municipal landfill.
The question currently before county commissioners is whether or not to help the city fund the purchase of land and construction of a new landfill, and, if so, how much money is appropriate.
