The first meeting of Adair County’s Solid Waste Advisory Committee was held in the courthouse annex Wednesday, March 29, 2017 with a purpose of brainstorming ideas and making recommendations to Fiscal Court.
Deputy Judge Executive Andrea Waggener opened the meeting and agreed to act as temporary chair and take minutes until officers can be appointed at future meetings.
Several items were on the agenda for the meeting beginning with an explanation of the funding available through the county in the form of grants to support litter abatement and recycling, Waste Tire Grant , application in for PRIDE HHW grant, Illegal Open Dump Remediation Grants to clean up a designated illegal open dump.
At the close of the meeting Ms. Burt challenged members to commit to volunteering one hour picking up litter from roadsides, one hour at PRIDE Spring Clean Up and one hour at the Recycling Center to have a better understanding of the problem that is plaguing our county. Dates for events are to be announced.
Present at the meeting were: Andrea Waggener, Vickie Pike, Wendy Burt, Pam Hancock, Terry Hadley, Kelli Bonifer, Harold Burton, Linda Waggener, Will Masters, David Smith, Tony Rose and Doug Keaton.
