COSHOCTON – The Coshocton County Commissioners met with Tammi Rogers, executive director of the Coshocton County Recycling and Litter Prevention to sign a letter of support for the Litter Prevention and Recycling Grant through Coshocton Fairfield Licking Perry Solid Waste District. Rogers is requesting $351,435.86, part of which she hopes to use to purchase a new packer truck. However, Fairfield County has two packer trucks they want to get rid of.
