Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, May 12, 2010 11A Quincy service di,.00trict wants to ,:Jump solia waste Joshua Sebold Staff Writer jsebold@plumasnews.com The Quincy Community Service District board of di- rectors agreed at its April meeting that General Manag- er Larry Sullivan should con- tinue working with Public Works Director Bob Perreault on the possibility of transfer of the district's solid waste powers to the county. Sullivan told directors he asked Perreault what he thought about the idea after a previous meeting where the board discussed whether dropping those powers would simplify a consolidation with East Quincy Service District. The manager said Perreault was very open to the idea, as he was hoping the county could get all the trash pick-up contracts outside of Porto.la into one countywide deal for a smoother transition towards all trash going through Inter- mountain Disposal's planned materials recovery facility in Delleker. In a telephone interview, Perreault explained having all solid waste narrowed down to two contracts, one for the county and one for the city, would allow the two entRiesto do business under a limited joint powers agreement. He said having service dis- tricts involved would force the groups to work under a typical JPA, which would force each entity to answer to one board, which would set solid waste policies for the county, city and districts. Perreault said the limited JPA would allow the county and city to retain more auton- omy and set their own poli- cies while still getting some advantages in bargaining by .having the largest possible group of customers. Back at the QCSD meeting, director Denny Churchill asked if the MRF would be a sorting facility, where all trash could go into the same bins and truck, with i-ecy- clables filtered out at the transfer site. Sullivan con- firmed that would be the case. Director Ruth Jackson asked if giving up the solid waste powers to the county would void the district's cur- rent contract. Sullivan said he wasn't sure. Board president Kim Kraul voiced her concern that urban areas like Quincy would end up paying more to subsidize more rural areas of the county, where trash pick-up is more expensive for the company. Director Dick Castaldini asked how committed the county and IMD were to get- ting the MRF. Churchill responded, "They want to build this thing, and my understanding is they have the funding to build this." He added, "It's a money maker in other areas and that's why they want to get in- to it. It employs 'X' number of people and it's a good deal." Churchill also mentioned that QCSD had enough issues on its plate without keeping track of solid waste anymore. Director Jim Bequette com- mented that it was sad to give up the powers after spending years fighting for what he said was about a 10 percent discount for QCSD customers compared to other parts of the county, but he felt it was the best move. The other board members agreed and gave Sullivan the go-ahead to cooperate with the county as it moved forward. Perreault explained the pre- liminary work he had done to the county Board of Supervi- sors later in the month and got their approval to keep the ball rolling.
