Jolliff, Thursday morning. Charleston Attorney Charles Brown. representing the Citizens l.~ague, stated during arguments in Circuit Court that Board Members David Ziegler, David Honaker. Donald Mock and Clyde Grimmett had each admitted to being employees or related to firms or organizat- ions that receives money from the Board of Education. Each had voted to pay the firms or organizations and should be removed from office. Attorney for the Board. David Parmer, argued that no pecuniary interest was involv- ed in the affirmative votes by the Board to pay the firms or organizations. Although the board members had admitted . to being employees or relatives of firms and organizations do ing business with the board they had certainly not admitted to any pecuniary interest Parmer filed two affidavits with the court, one signed by Superintendent Tassos and the other by Board business man- ager Billy Joe Kessler. Kessler's affidavit stated that the superintendent had nothing to do with investing or deciding where the school board would deposit its money. Since Brown had no know- ledge of the affidavits. Jolliffe gave him 2O days in which to respond and Parmer 2O days beyond that to respond to Brown. Jolliffe stated that summary judgment was frowned upon by the state Supreme Court because it takes away a per- son's right to trial. It any question arises concerning an issue of material feel, sum- mary judgment would not and could not be awarded.

Of The Solid Waste Management Plan of Monroe County and Summers County Submitted By Draper- Aden Associates, Inc. of Princeton. West Virginia. A sanitary landfill ~ as des- cribed in Improving Rural Solid Waste Management Practices) is an engineered method for disposing solid wastes on land in a manner that protects the environment. This disposal method is to be acc- omplished by spreading the waste in thin layers, compact- ing it to the smallest practical volume, and covering it with soil at the end of each working day. All landfills must comply with the West Virginia Board of Health regulations. A permit is issued by the West Virginia Health Department for operat- ion of approved facilities which follow those regulations. A sanitary landfill must be well - designed and planned as following the completion of the filling activity After tha landfill has been designed and developed, ( See Fig. 10. Typical Sanitary Land- fill Operating Methods). there are strict operating regulations set by the State Board of Health which must be followed. These regulations are summarized as follows: l. The facility shall be super- vised continuously by a trained individual during operating hours. 2. All employees shall be train- ed in first aid principles and first aid supplies shall be stock- ed at the site. No employeee should be permitted to work alone under any circumstances. 3. All waste and debris shall be covered with no less than six inches of compacted earth at the end of each working day. This should facilitate rainfall runoff and prevent ponding and vector infestation. would a long - term construct- 4.

Employees must be provided with utilities and facilities in- eluding washing and toilet arr- angements, electricity and safe heat. 7. A perimeter fence and locked gate must be used to limit entry to those authorized to dispose of solid wastes on the site and only when the supervisor ts on duty. 8. Arrangements must be made for storage and maintenance of vehicles used at the site during all local weather conditions. The location of the solid waste disposal site must be considered very carefully. The accessibility is a very import- ant factor. Suggested road des- igns to the site include that it be a two - lane road or one of sufficient width to allow pass- ing and also that it be of strength to carry the heavy collection trucks and equip- ment. The site should also be in a centralized location to allow maximum usage and thereby increasing the economics of its operation. Local opposition to the location cannot be forgotten either in an effort to develop a site which will be most accept- able to the users of the dis- posal facility. Killed A Marie delegation oppo to a proposed solid waste county landfill in that commun- ity questioned the County Com- mission about the site during the meeting Tuesday. The delegation stressed that ti~y~w'e~F not-against a solid waste landfill "in any sense of the word" and that they were trying to "assist the Commis- sion in finding a more suitable site." One person asked "what will happen to the well water at Marie?" I'm not talking about 5 years or I0 years. I'm looking 15 years from now. When my well becomes contaminated from your dump what recourse am I going to have?" He said he did not expect an answer to the question but wanted the Commission to~ think about it. Dallas Meadovs said he would be one of the major users of the water. He stated he has been in business for 5 years and. although his business had been termed "a pie in the sky," he would start a nursery in about two years. He said the landfill will "curtail my oper- ation" until "I find out what the underground water aspect is going to be: Whose going to be responsible if it does wipe out 300 thousand trees?' These question were left unanswered, but when asked if the county was going to "squire property to widen the road?" Billy Joe Edwards said, "due to extensive research" at theb Marie site "a 30-foot right-of- way for a county road" was found. However, the delegation wanted "to have some assur- ance that. that road does exist." It was stated that the present road is not designed to handle heavy trucks, That it would be difficult for two-way traffic. That trucks and school buses would not be able to pass each Hinton Bobcats won their second game ~)f the season by stomping Northfork 28 - 0. The high point in the game came during the third quarter when Timmy Wynes, intercep- ted a forward pass from Blue Demon quarterback Ronnie Miller and ran 35 yards for a touchdown. Roger Hodge kick- ed the extra point which gave the Bobcats a 20 - 0 lead. other and asked how much will it cost to widen it. A woman in the group asked if the road would be widened before some- one got killed? The Commission could not say if the road would be widen- ed, however, Bill Gore did point out that the road to the present landfill was widened after that landfill was put it. Members of the delegation complained they were not aware that the Marie site had been proposed until after the site had been submitted to the DNR. "I think you are inconsider- ate of the people in the Marie community," one man said. .John Gilbert said, "all the meetm, gs we nave had" on me landfill study "have been public." "I've been on ~he Commis- sion almost three, years," he said, "and we have meet- ing down here, and sit here all day and nobody comes in." Dr. Richards said "its difficult for working people to take time off to attend a County Commission meeting, which is always held during working hours. We can not attend every single meeting waiting to see what is on the agenda to see what affects us. We would assume the Commission, especially when it is something with this degree "of impact on our lives, or business and our homes, you would, in some way, inform us prior to our being affected. Now! When we find out engineering studies are bing made. As of July 25th a proposal was made to the DNR and we find out August 1. After you had already submitted this site. we found out it was going on." But Gilbert said the site "wasn't submitted in secret," "What kind of degree of secret?" Richards asked. "I don't know what President Reagan is doing unless he tells The Bobcats scored a touch- down in every quarter. Felix Wynes, carried the ball for the first touchdown with 1: 54 left in the first quarter. Hedge kicked the extra point and the quarter ended 7 - 0. The second touchdown was made by Jack Hellems follow- ing a 28 - yard run with only 1:12 remaining. Hedge kicked for~an extra point but missed. The half ended with the BOb- me.,~ Two people said they had lost a day of work to attend the meeting. Edwards pointed out several times that the site at Marie had not been definitely decided on and that "all of this could be in vain." "If a new landfill is put into operation jointly by the two counties that are presently looking into the situation (Summers and Monroe). I assure you it will be operated as a sanitary landfill and not a public dump." Edwards said the landfill would have a locked gate to prevent unauthorized dumping, Gilbert said, "We are trying to find a site that will cause a minimum amount of disrup- tion. We don't want anyones water to go bad. We don't want to run any buses off the road. We don't want to run any people off the road." The delegation recommend- ed three alternate sites for the county landfill. -One near the present landfill, which Edwards said was only "acces- sihie by helicopter." A site at Willow Wood and a site at Hilldale. The Commission also received an offer for 100 acres. out of a 1100 acre tract. Edwards said "this is some- thing we will direct to the engineering firms attention." This site is also near the present landfill. One person said the DNR had requested additional core drill- ings in order to study ground water and all the holes filled with water. Gilbert said he wasn't aware thaf some of the holes were f~l of water until that morning. "I'm sure the DNR and the ,health department will take 4hat into consideration," he said. "Maybe the site isn't as applicable as we thought it was. That's a decision that the DNR will have to make." cats 13, Blue Demons 0. Another touchdown came with 4:55 left in the game when Sandy Bostic pushed the ball over end zone for another score. A two point conversion followed by Grog Blankenshtp to end the game with a 28 point lead.
