Delaware Solid Waste Authority holds cost line The Delaware Solid Waste Au- thority Board of Directors has adopted the Fiscal Year 1997 user fee at $58.50 per ton for solid waste disposed at DSWA facili- ties. This marks a fourth consecutive year that DSWA has maintained statewide user fees at $58.50 per ton. DSWA had projected, in Janu- ary 1995, that the user fee would be about $62.22, beginning July 1. In January of 1996, the actual pro- posed per ton fee was $61.58. Af- ter a series of public meetings and a public hearing, the DSWA Board further reduced expendi- tures to hold the user fee constant. In order to hold the line on in- creases, DSWA staff and board have continued to streamline ser- vices and management strategies, resulting in cost reductions. Say- ings are being realized in such ar- eas as contractual services and daily operations. An example of this is DSWA taking over daily operations at the Jones Crossroads landfill, the DSWA owned disposal facility in Sussex County. Plans to increase cardboard re- cycling opportunities beyond the existing 16 locations have been suspended. The number of RECYCLE DELAWARE locations, which offer voluntary drop-off services to residents, will remain at 120 centers. "By keeping a watchful eye on our contract expenditures and op- erating costs, we were able to hold the user fee at $58.50 for another year," remarked Richard Pryor, DSWA Chairman of the Board. New Rehoboth street size report heard Charles Pyle gave a report from the Street and Light Committee to the Rehoboth Beach Board of Commissioners Sept. 13 concern- ing their recent street remeasuring efforts. During their efforts they consol- idated many streets into one sec- tion each and performed a variety of housekeeping measures. The committee recommended to the board that the city update its list of streets, which will increase state street aid funding, as the city now collec for 18.62 miles and the new map configuration would show 19.49 miles. City Manager Greg Ferrese said this could mean an additional $1,700 per year.
