A new cell is expected to extend the life of the landfill in Elkhart County by three years.

GOSHEN — The Elkhart County Board of Commissioners signed a nearly $730,000 contract for landfill expansion this year.

The board on Monday signed a construction contract with C&E Excavating, which submitted a bid of $728,200 to build an addition to the newest landfill cell. It was the lowest of four bids opened in August for the work at the Elkhart County Landfill.
