WMA Still Accepting Applications for Citizen's Committee


Sept. 2, 2005 – May Adams Cornwall, executive director of the Waste Management Authority, said last week that she was pleased with the response to meetings held on all three islands to form Citizen Advisory Committees.
She said more than 60 residents signed up to join the committees.
"The CAC will work with the WMA staff to review pertinent information on current and future projects, to make decisions affecting waste management in the community and to act as our advocates for infrastructure projects and environmental programs," Cornwall said in a release from her office.
Applications are still being accepted. They will be evaluated to select a cross section of the community to include people with experience or training in environmental engineering, solid waste, wastewater and other related areas. She said prospective committee members will be contacted the first week of September to coordinate the first meetings of the advisory committees.
Applications are still availabe at the Public Works Departments on St. Thomas and St. John, the Environmental Programs offices in Wheatley Center on St. Thomas and at Five Corners on St. Croix and at Sen. Craig Barshinger's office on St. John.
Applications will be accepted until Sept. 9.
