CCSWA holds reorganizational meeting
Friday, January 11, 2013
By Wendy Lynn Brion Staff Writer
The Clearfield County Solid Waste Authority met and reorganized at the beginning of last night's meeting retaining all the same officers as last year. The officers are as follows: Chairman Bill Mackereth, Vice Chairman Michael Delfosse, Secretary Bonnie Reinke and Treasurer Don Shaw. The meeting dates will be the second Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. every other month, including January, March, May, July, September and November. Ann Wood remains as solicitor and Johnston, Nelson and Shimmel will remain as auditor.
Director Jodi Brennan reported that she will be attending the public meeting on Jan. 22 concerning the PA Waste landfill in Boggs Township. The meeting is at 7 p.m. at The Lighthouse Church in West Decatur. The board discussed the proposed landfill and several concerns. One is that the proposed site has been mined repeatedly and is crisscrossed with fissures and faults, meaning any leakage would be nearly impossible to track or stop. Also, the plan was originally denied and the reasons for the original denial do not seem to be of concern now. "My question to (the state Department of Environmental Protection) would be, did you consider that report?" asked, referring to a report made by a hydro geologist about the proposed site.
The board agreed to write another letter detailing board members' concern about the proposed landfill.
Under old business, Mackereth said he spoke with the county commissioners about help with the budget and the possibility of the county paying the salary of the CCSWA enforcement officer. "They know our plight," Mackereth said, but that it didn't go beyond that point.
Brennan reported on the progress of the municipal waste plan. She said the state requested an additional 30 days to review with the new deadline Jan. 28. Meanwhile, the contracts started Jan. 1. Brennan said they are now paying less for drop off service and the company, Advance Disposal, formerly Veolia Environmental Services, will contribute $27,000 annually to CCSWA.
Brennan also asked for permission to advertise a request for proposals for tire disposal. She said she would like to open bids on Feb. 7 at 10:15 a.m. and award the bid to the lowest responsible bidder. This would be before the next regular meeting. The board agreed.
The board also approved sending a letter to Warden Sam Lombardo at the Clearfield County Jail commending the work of the prisoners at the drop off site.
The next meeting will be March 14 at 7 p.m. at the county administration offices.
