It was a fairly quiet evening at Oakboro’s Board of Commissioner’s meeting Monday night. Both Mayor Danny Long and Commissioner Ted Parker were absent due to family emergencies. The board asked that everyone remember them and their families in their prayers.
Chris Mattox spoke before council and the board finally made a decision on the repairs that need to be made at the home of Peggy Carey.
Mattox from God Bless USA, a waste hauling and recycling company, appeared before the board to introduce them to the company and to make an offer on the Oakboro waste management contract.
“We’re about 30 miles from here... We’re based out of Union County. We were established in 2005... We have over 4,000 customers in Union County,” said Mattox.
He relayed that one third of their fleet of trucks runs on natural gas. Additionally, his company is talking about building the first natural gas fueling station in the area.
