County Recycling Issues Persist

By Cassidy Pittman

Director of Building and Grounds Brad Seville met with commissioners Stuart Ulsh, Pete Lynch, and Rodney McCray at their weekly meeting Aug. 28 to discuss issues with the county’s recycling bins. During review of video surveillance, an individual was seen on camera throwing their trash outside of the designated recycling bins. Contact will be made with this individual to discuss the matter.

Also, because of the resignation of Conservation District environmental education specialist Greg Reineke as recycling coordinator, the commissioners have decided to make the recycling coordinator a county employee position as it was in the past. The position will be advertised promptly.

During a meeting with Planning and Mapping Director Mary Kay Seville, the commissioners endorsed Resolution No. 13 of 2018, making Seville the designated agent for all required forms and documents for obtaining financial assistance from the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program.

Karen McFadden also met with commissioners to discuss the professional service proposal for the Fulton County Fairgrounds. Proposals were submitted by CES Engineering LLC for $4,500 and the EADS Group Inc. for $3,800. McFadden also had commissioners sign off on the 2018 general election ballot.
