Authority sends letter about damage

The Chilton County Solid Waste Authority will send a letter to Taylor Made Transportation to get structural damage at the transfer station fixed.

The board said in last night’s meeting that one of the drivers hit the transfer station and caused significant structural damage. In the letter, they are requesting that they fix the damage within 30 days.

Taylor Made Transportation manages the transfer station’s day-to-day operation.

The authority also decided to fix a concrete curb around the station’s scale at the main entrance. Some vehicles have been running off the scale and onto wood platforms beside the scale. That has damaged the wood enough so it could possibly collapse. By installing a curb, the board hopes that vehicles will stay on the scales.

Thursday’s meeting was also the first for Dearl Hilyer, who became a board member after becoming Thorsby’s mayor.

Maplesville Mayor Kurt Wallace and Jemison Council member George Brasher were unable to make their first meeting last night.

Brasher was appointed to fill the Jemison mayoral position on the board.

December’s waste authority meeting was also canceled. The board went ahead and gave approval to pay the regular bills incurred next month.

The next meeting will be held Jan. 15 at the Thorsby Annex. All future meetings times will be held one hour earlier at 6 p.m.

At January’s meeting, they are also hoping to appoint new officers and to recommend a person to fill an at-large vacancy on the authority.
