ONE BIG STEP CLOSER TO HAVING A COUNTY RECYCLING COORDINATOR

 

At Tuesday mornings Bond County Board meeting, the board approved entering into a contract with the county water and soil conservation district to hire Emily Hartmann as the Bond County Recycling Coordinator.  Hartmann would technically be employed by water and soil but the funding would come from the county-wide tipping fee, at landfills.  The contract is for $10,000 and one year.  When the contract is finilized and approved, the county will have a recycling coordinator who would act as the orginizer and contact for recycling programs and questions in Bond County and will be able to be reached through the water and soil conservation office.  The county board approved the sheriff's and county clerk's reports and the 2006 IDOT motor fuel tax audit. You can see the meeting on New Wave Channel 18 at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday.

OCTOBER 4-10 IS FIRE PREVENTION WEEK

 

October 4-10 is Fire Prevention Week and the theme this year is "Stay Fire Smart! Don't Get Burned."  Fire Prevention Week is dedicated to focusing on important safety information that will help you stay safe from fires and burns year round.  According to State Fire Marshall Dave DeFraties, home fires are the cause of eight out of ten fire deaths.  Here are some tips to help protect you and your family.  Keep hot foods and liquids away from tables and counter edges where they might be pulled or knocked over.  Establish a 3-foot "kid-free" zone around the stove and never hold a child in your arms when cooking.  Be careful when using curling irons, ovens, irons, lamps, and heaters, and be sure to properly extinguish all smoking materials, candles and turn off unattended sources of heat.
