Fedigan looks back on department’s 2010 accomplishments

December 28, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsutawney Borough Police Department has its share of adversity this past year, but it also had many positive developments and programs that occurred at the same time.

Punxsutawney Borough Police Chief Tom Fedigan noted that some of the biggest accomplishments of 2010 came when drug arrests took place during the early morining hours of Sept. 10.

• Drug arrests — Fedigan said that 10 local residents from the Punxsy area were arrested on drug charges by officers from his department and with help from members of the Jefferson County Drug Task Force.

Solid Waste authority discusses action plan

December 28, 2010

BROOKVILLE — The Jefferson County Solid Waste Authority met Wednesday, and the possibility of constructing a new, 10-year action plan was discussed.

The catch: Deve-loping an action plan that meets the state Depar-tment of Enviro-nmental Protection standards is likely to cost upwards of $30,000.

For the cash-strapped waste authority, investing that amount of money may serve to only hasten the day when operating funds no longer exist and the county’s recycling program is forced to cease. The authority typically has an annual operating budget under $150,000.
