Transfer Station Manager Gerry Cornett
was present to meet with the Selectmen
to discuss the status of projects at the Transfer Station.
, Gerry feels it is not a good time to institute fees at this time because of the direction the economy is turning.
does suggest implementing a fee for e-waste of $3 for each laptop, CPU, printer and scanner and $5 for each microwave.
The town already charges $10 for each TV and $5 for each monitor.
The town is charged by the trailer load to take it out of town.
The Selectmen want to make sure any fees are reasonable, equal to what it costs the town to get rid of the item and less than what surrounding towns are charging.
suggested not implementing a fee for furniture except for bulky weight of 3-5 pieces of furniture or more.
The new fees will be announced for e-waste and bulk furniture and will be effective August 1.
, The trash hauler has been charging $150 for a "fuel surcharge" each time he
comes to the Transfer Station to haul items out.
This is the correct fee due to high fuel prices according to the contract he
has with the town.
However it seems extreme and Gerry is trying to work with the trucker and Weare who he also hauls for to arrange a more reasonable fee.
offered to get permission for him to fill up at the town pump on occasion with certain conditions but the trucker did not seem interested in this option.
is meeting with his
lawyer Tuesday and is expected to offer a more reasonable set fee per trip on Wednesday or Thursday.
will inform the Selectmen
answer when it is received.
The Weare Transfer Station Manager is interested in a truck co-op with New Boston.
, Transfer Station Status: Things are going well.
is requesting the Selectmen
allow the Transfer Station employees to have the day after July 4th off this year as it is a Saturday and there was not much activity at the Transfer Station that weekend last year.
accepted the resignation of Gerry Cornett
from the maintenance oversight position.
Burton will call Louise Robie from the church and ask if the new tanks are double wall tanks and will check with the rules and regulations Gerry
is using for oil containment at the Transfer Station.
