Northampton County Exec Stoffa Does Some Trash Talkin'

Northampton County Exec John Stoffa, with a little help from Environmental Service Coordinator Tom Dittmar and the DCED, announces a new recycling program that will save taxpayers money.

"I am pleased to announce that effective Monday, August 18, 2008 the Northampton County Courthouse campus will embark on a vastly improved waste recycling program. Under this new system, almost any item that passes through your hands on a daily basis can be recycled. This new recycling program is called 'single stream' - which means that acceptable items in office areas can be placed in one container. This effort will save at least $3,000.00 per year. The Courthouse Complex alone, presently deposits 50 to 60 tons of material in landfills per year. Other County buildings will be addressed in the near future."
In an effort to save toilet paper, I plan on using the outdoor fountains as a bidet.

Just like all his ideas, they wind up in the crapper.

Please reconsider your dual-use bidet-fountain plan. I suspect it will only encourage an increase in bottled water. That, and because I've just puked three times.

Maybe the $3000 will go towards the $100,000+ he has cost taxpayers by dragging his feet not completeing and delying needed projects.

Mmm, wouldn't it be nice if he cared as much about the county employees that are continually ignored and severely underpaid??...........he's such a wuss he can't even send his e-mails to the employee masses until 4:32, when everyone's computer is already turned off for the end of the day........

He is a darn sight better than his would be successor Ann McHale. One day she supports him the next she jabs him. He is a better friend to employees than McHale. He never voted to freeze pay and lay-off people and she did.
He is more of a solution than, part of the problem, McHale.

I'm sorry but don't know. I'm sure Mr. Dittmar can answer your question if you give him a call.
