in order to do so, and Waste Management too, is very eager to get
into the recycling business and is gearing up for it.
Mike Lafferty, 195 Welsh Hills Road, reporter for the Columbus
Dispatch, spoke on HB 592. The bill was signed by Governor
Celeste in July of 1988, and allows counties to join in the
formation of solid waste districts. The bill stipulates that
districts must submit a solid waste plan to the Ohio EPA by
December 1991, and must provide safe and sanitary management of
its solid waste for a minimum of 10 years. In addition, landfill
intake must be reduced by 25 percent. The law also encourages
recycling. Mr. Lafferty said we are all charged with doing
something. It' s hard to create new landfills, and we' ll be
running out in about seven years. If we don' t meet the 25%
reduction of landfill intake the state will come in and amend our
own solid waste plan to comply.
Councilmember Ormond said she had been talking with people
in Newark who have a grant writer to promote recycling, and if a Board is formed, she would like to see a member of Granville
Village Council on such a Board, and offered to take on that
responsibility.
Councilmember Malcuit said she would be interested in
serving on such a Board as well.
Mayor Eisenberg asked how the rock salt is working out for
the Street Department. Manager Plunkett responded and said
wonderful".He said the salt is being stored on a temporary site at present because the ground froze before the bay was completed.
Councilmember Marshall asked why there were some hydrants in
town with black bags and plastic tape on them. said Manager Plunkett those hydrants are not operating at 100%for a variety of
reasons, and the Village doesn' t want the Fire Department to
totally depend on those hydrants for water.
Councilmember Malcuit asked the Manager if he had received
any letters of interest in serving on Boards &Commissions.
Manager Plunkett responded and said he had received four
responses: Roger Roth, Mike Snyder, Ron Winters, and Dr. William Keeler.
