Waste Authority draft report online

A draft report of a consultant’s assessment of the Del Norte Solid Waste Management Authority has been posted online atrecycledelnorte.ca.gov.

The authority will hold a special meeting open to the public on the draft report at 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Crescent Fire Protection District, 255 W. Washington Blvd.

From the authority website’s home page, the report can be found by clicking “Scope and Reports regarding Assessment of Authority Performance.” 

The preliminary draft report from R3 Consulting Group became controversial by advising that the director position and scale house employees be privatized. The new draft report still includes possible privatization measures but acknowledges that recent case law in Costa Mesa might make the privatization of some positions illegal.
