WARSAW — The Kosciusko County Solid Waste Management District’s board members discussed upcoming plans and project updates for the year during its meeting today, Jan. 22.
The meeting started with Treasurer Michelle Puckett informing the board that an investment with 1st Source Bank went through.
“This is the first time a new bidder has gotten our CD for six or seven years,” said Puckett. “We’re excited to work with 1st Source Bank.”
This brings the District’s total investment to $1.4 million.
Kosciusko County Recycling Depot Director Tom Ganser then delivered his report to the board. He said the south receiving door project at the depot is set to be completed by July 1 of this year.
He also delivered the educator’s report for Education and Outreach Coordinator Suzanne Stokes.
“She has continued to break down lesson plans and has been revamping things 100 percent,” said Ganser. “Teachers have been very receptive.”
Stokes has also been connecting with civic groups and is networking with other educators in the county. One project Stokes is currently working on is a recycling initiative with Washington Elementary School. First-grade classes have been tasked as recyclers for the school, going to classrooms in the building and collecting paper to be recycled.
To conclude his report, Ganser said 125 televisions were brought in during its week-long amnesty period in January.
In other business:
- Brad Jackson and Bob Conley were re-instated as the board’s president and vice-president, respectively.
- Ganser said the warehouse’s furnace was replaced.
- The board’s next meeting is at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 19.
