Bob Williams presented some handouts , to the Board Members , summarizing the order of events related to the claim made by Superior Disposal Co. This issue was continued from last months meeting, pending a meeting between the Borens of Superior and Paul Maughn of the County Attorney's office. In a letter to the Landfill Council, Paul Maughn referred to the Governmental Immunity Statute. This statute states that a claim must be formally presented before the governing body, which in this instance is the County Commissioners , and that a claim cannot exceed a one year period of time. It is his recommendation that the claim be satisfied from April 18, 1986, when it was received by the County Commission Office, with a one year retrospect to April of 1985. • • Page 2 The total amount of the claim, during the payable time period, is $1 ,574.50. Some interest has been billed to Superior on those outstanding amounts , the exact amount of this interest had not been calculated at this point. Norm Jones moved that the recommendation be supported and that Superior be paid the $1,574.50 plus the accrued interest on that amount. This motion was seconded by Bill Davis and passed unanimously. DISCUSSION ITEMS 1. E.P.A. Regulations Steve Smith, of E.T. Technologies , gave a presentation at the October 31, 1986 Council meeting, concerning new E.P.A. regulations . Some questions arose regarding these new regulations and the effect they would have on current procedures . In an effort to clarify some of those questions , Craig Tribley, also of E.T. Technologies , stated that at the time of Steve's presentation, they were expecting several new regulations to become effective on November 8, 1986. Since those regulations did not go into effect, there is no need at the present time, to change any current operation procedures . 2. Recycled Paper Proposal Dan Bauer received a proposal from Recycler Waste Co. which he presented to the Council. Recycler Waste proposed setting up a site, similar to that of E.T. Technologies , where they could salvage cardboard and paper products that were being disposed of at the landfill. This would include selecting certain packers and unloading them at the recovery site, after the trucks had been weighed on the landfill scales . At this point Recycler Waste would manually go through the load and separate the paper. products . When they were finished with a load the recyclable paper material would be bundled and prepared for shipment. The remainder of the solid waste material would be placed in open top containers until the end of the day. At that time the containers would be transported to the tipping face and unloaded. Several questions were raised by members of the Council concerning this operation. A suggestion was made that the Landfill Council visit the site that is currently in operation. The members agreed and will be visiting the site in the near future to get a better idea of it's operational procedures . . 3. Third Quarter Report Dan handed out copies of the Landfill Third Quarter report to all of the Board members . The Council Members were asked to review them and then present any comments or questions at the next meeting. f • • Page 3 4.
