MERRILLVILLE | Lake County solid waste management officials haggled over the fine print of agreements for the county's proposed waste-to-ethanol plant.
Lake County solid waste officials say they want to make clear to communities that the incentives to send trash to a future Schneider plant are on a clock.
As Lake County communities consider 20-year contracts to send their trash to a planned processing facility, a former county solid waste adviser urges caution. He points to lingering questions and a past deal that failed, costing taxpayers millions.
On the eve of a public question-and-answer session regarding the county's planned trash-to-ethanol facility, some municipal officials are hoping for more answers and fewer closed doors.
There are two differing legal opinions on whether the Lake County Solid Waste Management District broke the law with a secret meeting. The bigger question, though, is this: What is it trying to hide?
Since 10 solid waste district board members were not an officially appointed board committee, no open meetings laws were violated during their closed Sept. 23 gathering, the state's access counselor said Tuesday.
Lake County solid waste officials may have convened what should have been a public meeting when they discussed a contract issue in a meeting they closed to the public, a media-law attorney says.
