The Natural Resource Small Advisory Committee (NRSAC) met on January 17, 2019 in the large conference room at the West Central Texas Council of Governments (WCTCOG) to score grant projects submitted by local communities in the WCTCOG (Region 7) in accordance with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) funding program. After reviewing the two grants submitted, the NRSAC, the WCTCOG and the TCEQ are pleased to announce that the City of Cisco, Texas was awarded $14,000 dollars for the purchase of a new cardboard baler and the City of Ballinger, Texas was awarded $14,300 for the purchase of a used baler, a new hydraulic floor jack, used trailers and cardboard cages.
These two communities are committed to recycling efforts in their respected communities and developing a strong partnership with the CTRA (Cooperative Teamwork & Recycling Assistance). We look forward to watching both communities develop their transfer stations, promote recycling and provide a cleaner, safer environment.
Congratulations to the cities of Cisco and Ballinger!
