County Waste and the role of the deputy director of public information
Council members should contact me or the Deputy Mayor to get prompt and accurate information about issues involving city government. The Deputy Director of Public Information is the FOIL officer and is charged with providing information to the general public.
There you have it. Maybe this will help facilitate communication between the administration and members of the City Council.
As for the information regarding the County Waste facility (which has completed an application to increase the daily average throughput and its hours of operation), Tutunjian said that they are "in the process of gathering that information right now. We will make it available to you when it is complete."
The Department of Environmental Conservation is soliciting public comment on the expansion up through August 12. Councilman Michael Loporto, D-At Large, has called a meeting of the Public Works Committee for Wednesday, August 4, to obtain an update on the proposal. The meeting is scheduled to take place immediately after the Parks and Recreation Committee meeting at 5:30.
