County seeks Moses Lake resident for solid waste board

Print Article

EPHRATA — Grant County Commissioners are looking for an interested citizen who lives in the Moses Lake area to serve on the county’s Solid Waste Advisory Committee.

According to a news release from the commissioners’ office, the committee helps the three county commissioners create “programs and policies concerning solid waste handling and disposal, the preparation of solid waste management plans” and review “proposed rules, policies or ordinances relating to solid waste prior to their adoption.”

Meetings are held once each quarter at the Grant County Public Works Department office near the Ephrata Municipal Airport.

“Participation primarily entails attending the meetings and reading material sent by the Public Works Department so that members can make informed opinions,” the county said in a news release.

There is no compensation for the position, the commissioners office added.

For further information, or to submit an application, check out the Grant County website under “Important Announcements” or call Joan Sieverkropp at 509-754-6082, ext. 3508.

The Board of Commissioners also announced that a Law Enforcement and Firefighters Disability Board meeting scheduled for Tuesday, May 14, has been rescheduled for Tuesday, May 21, at 4 p.m. in the Commissioners’ Hearing Room at the Grant County Courthouse in Ephrata.
