WILSON: Thank you everybody for being patient, hopefully Dan and Dan will make it back in here. Jimís prepared an agenda thatís based on the conversation we ended our last meeting with and this is picking up on the details of that, you know, the detailed questions that we really have to address and work our way through to come to a decision about our recycling/hauling contract. So, Jim has broken out, you know based on the discussion and maybe Iíll let you pick up here, Jim and introduce people to your notes. We may have to go into executive, waiting for Dan Manning to come back, because we are going to be talking about an on-going legal case and contract negotiations. So, you know, if you feel, Jim, that we need to go into executive, let me know and when Dan gets back, weíll check with him. But, please, Iíll let you introduce what youíve prepared here.

 

DOUGAN: Okay, thank you. Our last Solid Waste Committee meeting, which was April 11th, we went through the general terms of the current contract with Serkil, you know, the key points of that and then after discussion with the current issues regarding the glass and the needs of either to renew the contract by the end of June or at least put Serkil on notice that weíre going to do something different.

 

WILSON: Okay, good, so that leads us into the next phase of this discussion.

 

DOUGAN: So, next I tried to go through basically the same contact terms, and list them here and to decide what are the things that weíre going to try to negotiate.

 

PALMER:I donít think weíll get too detailed, one way or another. I think thatís an item for executive session, if we want to talk more specifically about that.

 

MANNING: I do have some information. I received correspondence, Friday and today, from lawyers on both sides, so we can discuss that in executive session. I can do that quickly, right now. Maybe we should just quickly go in.

 

DOUGAN: My opinion is, that we do have that discussion, right now, before we move forward.

 

MANNING: I think it would be prudent, just so you know whatís going on.

 

WILSON: So, weíll have a motion to go into executive, at 11:50 AM. Thank you, Mr. Hughes, second, Ms. Winemiller. All in favor, aye? If we could ask Tim to step out and thank you, Tim.

 

 

THE TASK FORCE ENTERED EXECUTIVE SESSION AT 11:47 AM TO DISCUSS THE SOLID WASTE CONTRACT AND POTENTIAL LEGAL ISSUES.

 

 

WILSON: So, if I could have a motion to go back into regular session? Mr. Hughes, second Ms. Winemiller, thank you.

 

 

THE TASK FORCE ADJOURNED EXECUTIVE SESSION AT 12:45 PM AND RE-ENTERED REGULAR SESSION.

 

 

WILSON: As no decisions were made and we have nothing further to discuss, this meeting is adjourned. Thank you, all.

 

 

 

AS THERE WAS NO FURTHER BUSINESS TO COME BEFORE THIS SOLID WASTE TASK FORCE IT WAS ADJOURNED AT 12:45 PM.

 

 

Respectively Submitted,
