Dependable Erection

Who knew?

From the HS:
DURHAM -- Durham County hosted the second of two Solid Waste Plan Management meetings Wednesday evening at Durham's East Regional Library.

Problem was, nobody came.

County officials called the meeting to gain input from residents on revising their current waste management plan, but no one besides a county and city representative, both of whom work within waste management, came to the meeting.

"I think that sometimes solid waste, although it's an important issue, it sometimes gets forgotten," said county waste reduction specialist Brian Haynesworth. "I think people just trust the government to take care of it."

The 10-year plan details how the county will deal with solid waste issues including waste reduction and disposal, recycling and littering.

I've looked through my inbox, and i'm just not seeing any announcements from the city about this meeting. Don't know that i would have made it last night anyway, but without knowing about it, there was no chance i was going to be there.

  • I'm on a ridiculous number of community lists, to the point that I get at least three notifications about every PAC meeting, four for DPD Community Responses, and God knows how many from John Schelp and Ellen Dagenhart. I don't remember hearing as much as a peep about this.

  • A email from someone at the INC meeting earlier this week suggests that, despite someone from Solid Waste Management giving a departmental update, no mention of the meeting was made there either.
