Official has a new role
Michael Cassidy, director of environmental services for Jessamine County, has been elected vice chairman of the executive board of the Solid Waste Coordinators of Kentucky.
In his new role, Cassidy will assist in planning workshops for statewide training and attend meetings with state lawmakers.
The organization, which works closely with the Kentucky Division of Waste Management, was instrumental in introducing and lobbying lawmakers for the waste tire bill to help counties properly dispose of waste tires.
The group also helped to create The Kentucky Pride Fund, which provides state funding for dump cleanup, recycling and hazardous-waste removal.
