From the beginning, Powell city leaders have faced an uphill battle while trying to create a transfer station.
A transfer station is needed when the Powell landfill closes to household trash in September. It will help hold down city sanitation costs and limit wear and tear on garbage trucks by reducing the number of daily trips needed to haul the city’s garbage to Cody, they say.
Northwest College to plan search for new president
Members of the Northwest College community continue to react with surprise over Northwest College President Paul Prestwich’s announced resignation, but they also are beginning to consider what qualities the college’s next leader should possess.
Last week, Prestwich announced he will resign when his current contract ends on June 30, 2013.
In an effort to recoup its losses following alleged embezzlement of nearly $850,000 by former hospital CEO Paul Cardwell, the Powell Valley Healthcare Board of Trustees voted Monday to intervene in a lawsuit against Cardwell.
In addition, the board voted to add Michael Plake of Indiana, believed to do business as Plake and Associates, as another defendant in the lawsuit.
Plake and Associates is the unidentified “straw company” in the lawsuit, said Dr. Mark Wurzel, PVHC board president, on Monday.
The Wyoming Legislature could take an example from Park County School District No. 1.
On Friday, the deadline for bills to be introduced into the Wyoming House of Representatives or the Wyoming Senate, representatives and senators pushed hard to assure that each bill got its chance for introduction.
With last week’s denial by the Park County Commission of a special use permit for the city of Powell’s planned site for a garbage transfer station, both governing entities now need to work together to find another solution.
From the outside looking in, it appears both could have done a better job of working toward a cooperative outcome of last week’s hearing.
