Approve the minutes of the previous meeting  The Minutes of February 28, 2002 were changed to reflect a cash balance of  $185,000 instead of $185,00.   A motion was made to approve the February 28, 2002 minutes with correction.  Seconded and carried unanimously.


Update on City’s Recycling Task Force report   Request for Proposals (RFP) to be presented again to the City Commission on October 15, 2002.  Action will be taken at this meeting.  Copies of the RFP are available upon request.


View County WebSite/Recycling Information Page  Julie Winter accessed the Riley County website and presented a brief overview of what it has to offer.  Members present contributed some useful ideas to the site.


Update on Solid Waste Fund status No update was available at this time. 



Update on 2003 Recycling Directory  Julie reported that she would like some new ideas for the directory and its distribution.  Alan Ladd was asked if the Education Subcommittee would be interested in assisting Julie with this.  Ladd will ask them and get back with Julie.  Since the directory will soon be available on the website a suggestion was made to print the directory every other year.  This will result in significant savings to the Solid Waste Fund.   The next directory will be for years 2003 – 2004. 


Annual Solid Waste Plan Review Monty stated that the current Solid Waste Plan would not need updated at this time.  Dan Harden moved that the current Solid Waste Management Plan would not need updated until the next review.  Betty Book Seconded. 

Motion carried unanimously.   Monty will send a letter to the state reflecting this motion by the SWMC.
