The county is closer to imposing universal garbage for those in unincorporated areas of the county.
The board voted unanimously to hire a Tallahassee attorney to help move the process forward.
Commissioner Mike Nelson suggested the county hire David Dee of Landers & Parsons.
Dee will help draft a set of guidelines for effective solid waste collection.
Commissioners hope mandatory trash pickup for all county residents will prevent illegal dumping of trash on public property.
