PATTE NEWMAN'S

NORTHEAST CITIZENSí MEETING

THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 2007

We have all heard the term ďgarbage in - garbage outĒ and Aprilís meeting will provide proof that this is not always true. Can garbage become black gold? Is there something going on at Lincolnís landfill stations that benefit the citizens of Lincoln? Is Lincoln as environmentally aware as we could be? What long term impact do each of the recycling areas scattered throughout town have on the taxpayer of Lincoln?

Please join us to hear Gene Hanlon give details on our City landfill and Lincolnís recycling system. Simple questions about hours and fees which have changed in the past year will be answered, but he will be available to answer everything you always wanted to know about trash - but were afraid to ask. Uncertain about yard waste or whether plastic bags are bio-degradable? What do you do with hazardous materials (and what IS hazardous)? Are wood chips free? What about compost?

Gene Hanlon is the Recycling Coordinator and is dedicated to providing protection systems and procedures ensuring the site remains safe to the environment and public health while consciously calculating new initiatives.

Please join us on:

Thursday, April 19, 2007 - 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm

Victor E. Anderson Branch Library - 3635 Touzalin Avenue


NOTE FROM PATTE:

This will be my last Northeast Citizensí meeting as your elected representative. I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve for four years. I tried to be responsive and open to the needs and concerns of all citizens citywide who contacted me, to serve to the best of my ability, to represent my district fairly and honorable and to treat everyone with respect. I enjoyed these monthly meetings which helps us all better understand the inner workings of the City and to meet the dedicated employees who work hard to serve us all. I want to specifically thank those of you who loyally attended most or all of these meetings, regardless of the topic or the weather! The most satisfactory part of the past four years was getting to know individuals I might not have met otherwise. I will always treasure the constituency of Northeast residents as hard-working, honest and sincere, with values that make us all proud to be Nebraskans. Thank you all, from the heart!
