Cortland County lawmakers have voted to move forward with borrowing nearly 4 million dollars to fund a project to cap a portion of the county landfill and to pay for 2 years of a 10 year highway improvement plan.
 
Last night lawmakers issued a bond anticipation note for $1.5 million to fund highway repairs this year in addition they are issuing a note for $868 thousand dollars to pay for the landfill cap. The landfill project cost is is $1.4 million, they county has $545 thousand in a current closure account and will use that to cover the balance the project cost.

The county is spending up to $17 million dollars for a  multi-year highway capital plan approved back in 2011. Last year the county spent $1.6 million, that money is also currently borrowed on a bond anticipation note. Lawmakers plan to use the short term bond notes and roll all the notes into a multi year bond by or before February 2015.
