At the Peoria City/County Landfill Committee meeting Sept 18, the waste receipt report from Waste Management showed a drop in landfill tonnage for August 2019 with the year-to-date waste at 113,582 tons compared to 120,091.64 tons in 2018.
Foth staff presented a report researching declining waste trends at the current Peoria City County Landfill 2 (PCCL2), which was requested by the Landfill Committee. Several interesting bar graphs comparing amounts of recycling by year and tonnage at the landfill along with other analyses reached the following conclusions:
All members were present at the September 10 meeting and arrived early. Minutes, expenses, and reimbursement for expenses related to the HAVA Security Grant were approved. Additional cameras, door access panels, software, and training have already been added. Director Tom Bride will also be asking for partial reimbursement for some County expenses that were pushed by election needs.
Staff is currently looking at ballot readers, and a Request For Purchase will go out once exact needs are determined. The State's Attorney was not present, but Director Bride reported that the County is getting close to a determination on the property tax issue (whether the landlord is responsible for real estate tax on the part of the building housing the election commission).
