  • The Rivanna Solid Waste Authority Board meets from 2-3pm Tuesday at its headquarters at 695 Moores Creek Lane. In addition to staff reports on its landfill and recycling center, the Board will hear an introduction of the county’s request for future solid waste services. A meeting of the Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority will take place at the same time, also at headquarters, and will address a recent audit report and an update from the Rivanna River Basin Commission. It will be the last RWSA meeting of 2012, as the Authority plans to cancel its December meeting.
