Legislation update from SLEC

January 13th, 2015 Legislation Update from the SLEC: The committee hearing for SB 249 was held on Monday morning. After presentations from both sides Senator Leising, who authored SB 249, decided to hold the bill. While this is not the victory we were hoping for it does give us a little more time to prepare. However, it could be back in the committee as early as next week. We are concerned that if this bill passes the Senate and even if it fails in the House it could still come back in Conference Committee at the end of the session in some other form. What can you do?...

Garbage Rates for 2012 thru 2014

The board negotiated a three year contract with our current contractor starting in 2012.  The rate is 15.40 per month for weekly garbage pickup and twice monthly recyle pickup.  Members will not pay a fuel surcharge.   Non members pay 18.00 per month and have a fuel surcharge of 5-6.00/month.  So the total non-member cost is 23-24.00/month depending on fuel surcharge rates.  It is possible that the surcharge rate could increase as well for non-members. Members save a minimum of 7.60/month.  That is an annual savings of 91.20.  Please remember to send in your membership...
