The Elk County Commissioners were also present at the meeting to give their input on the matter.At previous meetings, the authority had discussed hiring an employee to work at the center to provide needed assistance and to help curtail the amount of comp time put in by Elk County Recycling/Solid Waste Coordinator Bekki Titchner, Elk County Solid Waste Authority/Conservation District Secretary Diane Meyer and County Enforcement Officer Dave Stubber. Debate centered on how large a role the authority should play in hiring someone to help out at the center.
