Plymouth: Advisory and Finance Committee to revisit vote on solid waste disposal

At their meeting tonight, Plymouth’s Advisory and Finance Committee is expected to reconsider its vote last week against the DPW’s solid waste enterprise fund budget, a budget that allows for curbside pickup of solid waste.

FinCom’s vote, three in favor and eight opposed to funding this budget, is a move that essentially undercut the Select Board’s approval of a combination of curbside and transfer station use, called option three. John Moody is acting chair of FinCom: “The committee didn’t feel that there was a compelling business case around option three that was provided to us, and I think that by the Department of Public Works coming back to us, I think we’ll get a much better sense of what’s an appropriate decision to make.”

If the matter is reconsidered, what will the Advisory and Finance Committee vote on tonight? “We are voting on funding the solid waste enterprise fund either with the funds that are required for option one, or the funds that are required for option three.” Option one calls for the use of 3 transfer station with Pay As You Throw. FinCom meets tonight (Tuesday) at Plymouth Town Hall at 6:00.
