The environment advisory committee report caused quite a stir at Monday’s council meeting.
Only one item required council approval in the minutes – the proposed 2015 budget allocations for the solid waste 2015 recycling initiatives. The proposed 2015 expenditures were $52,500. The fund has been in place for at least a decade.
“It’s a fund generated from the landfill, which was dedicated to promote more waste reduction through recycling initiatives. That was the broad purpose,” Coun. Don Mitchell told the Times-Herald this week.
