Sullivan manager negotiations

The Sullivan County Legislature is quietly negotiating a departure agreement with county manager David Fanslau. Five of the nine legislators have been calling for a change of managers since last summer. Because of a change to the county charter in 2007, it takes a supermajority of legislators to either appoint or dismiss the county manager, even if the manager’s contract is not renewed, which is the case with Fanslau. The five legislators have begun the process to change the county charter back to the way it was before 2007, in which the manager could be changed by a simple majority.

Sullivan farmers and newsprint; One person’s waste may be an animal’s bedding

With Sullivan County Legisl ators keeping a careful eye these days, Ed McAndrew thought that they should consider a county policy of since the late 1990s of allowing farmers to walk away with newsprint to be used for bedding for cattle or cows.

McAndrew, deputy commissioner of the Division of Public Works, said he did not have an exact figure about how much newsprint the farmers were taking, but he estimated “it’s in the neighborhood of 200 tons per year, and you’re looking at about $20,000 a year of newsprint that isn’t being marketed.”  Read more
