LETTERS: Facts about ‘Ash for Trash’ proposal

To the editor: Will Onondaga County import trash to burn? Three things to watch: 1. OCRRA’s contract with Covanta is “hurtling toward its May 2015 expiration date.” This contract, signed in 2003, gives the plant away for a dollar and allows waste to be brought in from anywhere. Who signed this and was it legal? Who was informed about this agreement? Covanta must have been aware of a ban on importation and agreed to it. OCRRA had 12 years to develop a plan that followed the wishes of the public and their lawmakers. Now they’re “hurtling” and are trying to sign a deal with Cortland County to make money after they “sold the store” in 2003?

LETTERS: Be thankful for a job well done

To the editor: What a long winter it has been. The past four months have kept many of us isolated in our homes due to cold weather [with] mounds of snow piling up, especially for us Baldwinsvillians. We know how the weather can change the farther we head west on 690 and deeper into the Lysander area. Snow plows and crooked mailboxes have become the norm for many of us who live on the outskirts as the snow banks pile up, reminding us of what winters were like as children.
