Plan sent to state
JOHNSTOWN — A compliance report for Fulton County’s solid waste operation plan was recently submitted to the state, as the county looks to extend the plan for four more years.
County Solid Waste Director David Rhodes discussed the report and plan at a recent meeting of the Board of Supervisors’ Public Works Committee at the County Office Building.
Rhodes said that Fulton County’s Local Solid Waste Management Plan biennial compliance report was submitted to the state Department of Environmental Conservation on April 22.
He said that if approved by the state, it will extend the county’s plan to 2025.
Elsewhere in an operations report, Rhodes said the county Department of Solid Waste was notified that $45,380 in recycling education/recycling coordinator grant funds covering 2020 expenditures were received on March 29.
Rhodes reported that online registration for the county’s Aug. 7 Household Hazardous Waste Drop Off Day is being developed through the county’s Information Technology Department. He said county Recycling Coordinator Dianne Woske is working with IT’s web and graphics specialist.
The committee approved a proposed resolution requesting a budget amendment to correct account designations for the county’s vertical landfill expansion project. The full board will take final action May 10.
Rhodes said he learned the county incorrectly listed the wrong reserve account to fund the expansion project in the county’s 2021 capital plan and budget.
Supervisors approved a budget amendment to designate “landfill depreciation” as the correct reserve and expense accounts for the project. The change means that $83,000 will be transferred to the proper accounts.
