Q. In the early ’90s, there was a move to site a new landfill in Scott County. Shive-Hattery was the consultant. There also was a committee of citizens involved. What were their names? — Joe, Princeton, Iowa
A. We contacted the Waste Commission of Scott County for more information. Kathy Morris, director of the Waste Commission of Scott County, responded:
Members of the Citizens Advisory Committee and their affiliations:
"Sheila Bosworth, Sierra Club (committee chair); Glenn Keppy, local farmer; John Rodgers, mayor of Riverdale; Mena Hautau, Iowa State Extension; Lonnie Miller, soil conservationist; Michelle Moeller, Citizens for a Safe Environment (CASE); Pat Walton, Health Operations to Protect Our Environment (HOPE); Molly Osterhaus, Health Operations to Protect Our Environment (HOPE); Bill Woodson, forester; and Mark Beorkrem, Quad-City Conservation Alliance."
Beorkrem later resigned from the Citizens Advisory Committee for health reasons. He died in 2007, according to information in the Quad-City Times archives.
Kathy Morris also attached a copy of the mission statement for the Citizens Advisory Committee. To view the mission statement, go to qctimes.com/askthetimes.
Morris also said, "Please note that the Commission name is different. It was changed several years ago. It's still the same 28E agency that was formed in 1972."
