3. Septage Waste Site Issues: Both Ozzie Wilson, Chairman of the Board of Trustees for the Moosehead Sanitary District, and also David Thorp, Owner of Thorp Septic Services each wish to address the Board of Selectmen regarding the future of septic waste in Greenville. As the Board knows, the capacity of the current land-spreading site is currently insufficient to handle all of the septage waste generated by the Town of Greenville, let alone the Towns of Shirley and beaver Cove. I believe the MSD has interest in working with us to take over and possibly expanding some or all of the functions and duties of the site; I believe David Thorp has some similar suggestions and also a proposal for (again) using the Town of Greenville’s winter storage tanks as a transfer station for this material. I urge the Board of Selectmen to consider these suggestions: by law, each municipality must have a mechanism in place for disposal of septage waste generated within its borders.

Currently, we do not fully meet this requirement as we do not have a means to dispose of the amount of volume generated last year by the Town of Greenville. Without knowing the details of the MSD proposal (if they indeed have a proposal), I believe it would be the best course of action to again allow area contractors use of the winter storage tanks, provided there is a financial “hold harmless” clause in our agreement, as they was last year. The current limited capacity of our land-spreading license will most likely be exhausted within a month of operation, once the site opens later this spring.

6. Nomination Form for MMA Legislative Policy Committee: Nominations are being sought by the Maine Municipal Association for this committee (two municipal representatives are elected by the member municipalities of each state senate district every two years to serve on this committee). I have served in this capacity for our region and town for the past 8 years. I would like to continue to serve, if the Board of Selectmen would be willing to nominate me.
