    I think it would be helpful to create a chart that gives taxpayers an idea of what the increased costs per household would be.
    If ones taxes are 5000 to 50000 what is the percentage impact😊?
    I could not understand the chart.
    Also what is the impact on the ferry district revenues?Will they have to raise our fees because of lost business?
    How do the resists and property owners in this district feel about a new waste facility in their midst?Theres been new investment in the community center area.Will that come to a standstill?
    Isn’t there a better place to do this upgrade?
    Have you sent out a mass email to explain to summer and winter residents what to expect?The Website is not user friendly.
    I don’t think the awareness level is high enough for the majority of homeowners.
    I recommend mod communication to stem the negative reaction of those on the island.

      Thank you. The District is currently taking comments on its draft Local Solid Waste Management Plan and any comments related to this Plan, will be addressed in a summary document and filed with the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation after October 31, 2018. Any comments related to the consolidation of facilities will be reviewed. We invite you to attend our meeting on November 26, 2018 morning at the community center (morning time to be determined) where the District will be discussing the consolidation plan.

    I can’t find a concise statement of what is supposed to be segregated for recycling. ??

    Thanks for your question. If you click on the “transfer station” at the top of the page you will see the list. If you click on “compost station” at the top of the page you will find what is accepted at the compost station. Also the new phone phone book on pages 16 and 17 is a list.
