An application submitted by the Dallas Area Municipal Authority to use the former M & M Trucking repair shop at 3337 State Route 118 as a solid waste and recycling center was approved during a public hearing on Sept. 16.

The hearing was held before the regular board of supervisors meeting.

The application was approved on the condition that trucks carrying garbage must be parked indoors overnight, Board Chairman Dave Sutton said during the regular meeting.

Six trucks will operate out of the center - three garbage and three recycling - Sutton said, adding that the only maintenance allowed on the trucks at that location will be washing the exterior of the vehicles.

In other business, the board voted to give Police Chief Howard Kocher the approval to pursue the accreditation process for the police department. Accreditation sets standards for the department to follow and is overseen by a panel of peers, Kocher said.

Kocher also announced the department purchased two computers for the office and two notebook computers for the police cruisers. The purchases were made possible by roughly $5,000 in state gaming money.

The next board of supervisors meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Oct. 21.
