Northern Berkshire Solid Waste Mulls Possible Expansion
iBerkshires.com reports the solid waste district is hoping for a decision from North Adams, and possibly Dalton, before considering service contracts.
The Northern Berkshire Solid Waste Management Commission on Thursday discussed the bid process for servicing the district and, with the possibility of North Adams coming on board, wants to ensure they use every resource available.
Program Coordinator Linda Cernik said "This is a very, very important bid coming up. There can't be any mistakes, any hiccups, nothing."
The possible inclusion of North Adams and Dalton would be especially convenient this year as both municipalities' solid waste contracts expire on June 30, the same date as the district's.
Although the move is viewed as positive on most fronts, Windsor Selectman and Commissioner Doug Mcnally would like timely decisions from both communities so the solid waste district can move ahead with the bid process.
The commission's accountant Terry Haig agreed that it was in the best interest of both North Adams and Dalton to decide quickly.
The next meeting of the waste district commission will be on Nov. 14 at the Adams Visitors Center.
