Cross began by discussing projects Preble County Solid Waste Management District Assistant Director Beth Wright is currently working on.

Commission President Denise Robertson asked if there is a Facebook page for Trash Bash 2020, but Cross said there wasn’t. She suggested if this years event “falls flat” they make changes moving forward.
