The Carson City landfill could soon be bringing more revenue into city coffers while changing its methods for handling the refuse.

The Carson City Board of Supervisors will consider Thursday directing staff to move forward in negotiations with regional neighbors for increasing the landfill's intake.

The board will take a look at waste management recovery for the landfill by working with Douglas County and South Lake Tahoe, as well as others.

It also will discuss a contract with Recology for operation of the landfill and a waste recovery facility that could include a future waste-to-energy component.

In other matters Thursday, the board is set to:

• Approve an amendment to the agreement with the Brewery Arts Center to provide governmental access programming. It provides for the continued operation through June 30, 2011.

• Appoint R.C. Alexander and Tom Keeton to the committee to prepare an argument advocating voter approval of a school bond question for the Nov. 2 ballot.

• Adopt collective bargaining agreements between Carson City and the Carson City Sheriff's Supervisory Association on behalf of the sheriff's sergeants and deputies.

• Introduce a water bond ordinance and a sewer bond ordinance.

• Appoint three members to the Convention & Visitors Bureau for two-year terms. The applicants are:

Hotel/Motel position: Dwight Millard seeking reappointment;

Commercial interest position: Stephen Lincoln seeking reappointment and Sean Lehmann;

Citizen at large position: Delsye Mills seeking reappointment, Donna Inversin and Steven Lasco.

The Carson City Board of Supervisors meets at 8:30 a.m. Thursday in the Sierra Room of the Carson City Community Center, 851 E. William St.
