Seneca County took a first step Tuesday toward developing a solid waste management plan.
The board’s Agriculture & Environmental Affairs Committee voted 4-0 to direct County Manager Mitch Rowe and County Attorney David Ettman to review information provided by the state Department of Environmental Conservation on what is needed for the plan.
Rowe and Ettman will review a DEC-supplied outline and a checklist of the requirements for a state-approved SWMP.
“With Seneca Meadows scheduled to close in 2025, we should start to plan for what happens after that. You can’t start too early,” said committee Chairman Paul Kronenwetter, R-Seneca Falls.
