City Administrator David Huseman asked Sanitation Supervisor Gary Hyde to
address the Commission on the brush pit and grinder operation located at
the County Balefield site. Mr. Hyde thanked the city and county government
for their support of the operation. On the first day of operation over 785
tons of yard waste was ground and removed from our community. This joint
effort benefits the county in helping meet their mandate to reduce the
solid waste stream by at least 25% through recycling, and reduces the time
spent by the city in transporting yard waste to Wildcat Ridge, thus
increasing our productivity in picking up the waste.
With no further business to come before the Board, a motion was made by
Commissioner Gowen to adjourn; a second was made by Commissioner Pulley.
Motion passed. Meeting adjourned.
