Re: Proposition No. 1
General obligation debt Landfill Equipment Upgrades
Because uncleared snow surrounding refuse cells currently leaches into our soil, potentially harming our water quality, we qualify for a $1.2 million DEC Clean Water Fund Loan, the terms of which are extremely favorable, and include $500,000 of loan forgiveness. 

This is fortunate, because our Refuse Department desperately needs new equipment. The loader pictured above can hardly make it up a hill. The excavator costs more to keep running that it is worth. And a new dozer would let us solve the water quality issue mentioned above and keep the delta pristine.

We will release a lot more information about this Ballot Prop between now and March, including opportunities to meet with Refuse Superintendent Aaron Muma and Public Works Director Sam Greenwood with any questions.

For the moment, though, the long and short of it is this: We can pass this ballot proposition now, and have the DEC foot $500,000 of the bill, with 1.5% interest on the other $700,000, or we can kick the can down the road for another year or two until these machines fail catastrophically, at which point we’ll have no choice but to pay the full $1.2 million at 4% interest.

It’s a no-brainer. Help us keep your Trash bills low. Help us keep the delta clean. Vote YES on Ballot Proposition No.1.
