STEUBENVILLE - The JB Green Team board of trustees continued to discuss its financial options Monday night as revenue from the Apex Sanitary Landfill decreased in April.
The facility no longer is receiving out-of-state municipal solid waste after the landfilll owners sold their railroad operations.
"The planning committee met last week and will discuss their proposals with the finance committee and then bring the financial options to the full board at the July meeting," announced Board Chairman and Belmont County Commissioner Matt Coffland.
The board also heard a financial report from Fiscal Officer Dave Hays, who said the April revenue from the Apex landfill was the lowest he's seen.
"Our total tonnage tipping fees received for April was $52,073.25," said Hays.
"Our reorganizational plan is now in place and we are considering cuts. We have talked about Phase I and Phase II plans and I am just waiting to present a final proposed plan at our July meeting," commented JB Green Team Executive Director Cliff Meyer.
That prompted board member Mark McVey to question why the board was continuing to spend money on litter enforcement programs in Jefferson and Belmont counties.
"We are talking about laying people off but we are spending additional money. I want to make sure our money is well spent," said McVey.
Board member and Jefferson County Health Department Administrator Bruce Misselwitz said a work crew at the Apex Landfill cut into a gas collection pipe line while working on a leachate issue.
And the board formally welcomed Terry Bell back to the board of trustees. Bell replaced Stratton Mayor John Abdalla who resigned at the May meeting.
In other action, Coffland appointed Steubenville City Manager Tim Boland to serve on the finance committee and to chair the personnel committee.
The board also met in a 30-minute executive session to discuss personnel.
