John Marsolaismarsoj@ci.albany.ny.usAlbany City ClerkAlbany City Hall24 Eagle StreetAlbany, NY 12207Re: draft EIS on proposed draft solid waste management plan for the CapitalRegion Solid Waste Management PartnershipDear Mr. Marsolais:Below are comments regarding the above-referenced matter. I offer these onbehalf of Save the Bush (SPB). Please forward these comments to members of the Albany Common Council. Please confirm receipt of these comments. Thankyou.Tom Ellis--------Dear members of the Albany Common Council,Early this year, the City of Albany's solid waste consultant, Clough Harbour &Associates (CHA), completed a draft long range solid waste management planfor the Capital Region Solid Waste Management Partnership (the planning unit of Albany and the dozen or so municipalities who now dump trash in the RappRoad landfill). CHA worked for 16 months with a 24-person "Steering Committee"appointed by Albany Mayor Gerald Jennings. CHA and the steering committeemet fourteen times between November 2008 and March 2010. I attendedthirteen of these meetings. Several steering committee members objected or strongly objected to parts of the report. About one-third of appointed steeringcommittee members (the mayors or supervisors of mostly Albany Countymunicipalities that use the dump) either did not participate in the process or attended only one or two of the meetings.The Albany Common Council (ACC), as lead agency, voted October 4 to acceptthe report as complete and opened up a 45-day public comment period that endsNovember 19. The ACC held a public hearing October 25 at which five spokeafter CHA made a presentation.A major defect in the report is that while CHA asserts (page ES-1) it is a 20-year plan (2011-2030), waste diversion (from disposal facilities) data are provided(pages ES-5 and 6-2) for the years 2010-2020 only. No data for 2021-2030 isprovided. Are there no goals for the third decade of this century? If not, why
