The ERMC 2001 Accomplishments list was introduced to the committee for review. Associate Planner Viado noted that, like last year, the current list would be forwarded to the City Council as an informational item. Chairman McNelly felt that the city's "Award winning" Backyard Composting Workshop program should be included in the list. The committee also felt the accomplishments should reflect the city's diversion ranking in Orange County.

After additional discussion on the list of accomplishments, Committee member Roberts made a motion to accept the 2001 Accomplishments as amended, Committee member Hardwick seconded the motion. The motion was unanimously approved. Chairman McNelly expressed his gratitude for staff's preparation and participation with the committee.

Committee members discussed the County of Orange National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit renewal, of which the city is listed as a "Co-Permittee". There is some concern regarding the costs associated with various new programs proposed in the permit renewal and how the city will implement the new requirements. Associate Planner Viado assured that Engineering Department Director Bob Hodson was attending the regional board meetings on the permit renewal and a report would be forthcoming to the committee at a future date.

The discussion continued to cover the committee's concerns regarding Solid Waste Issues, such as the Green Waste Collection program, Used Oil Collection and Beverage Container Recycling Programs. Associate Planner Viado indicated various speakers would be invited to future meetings to discuss these topics in further detail.
