Storm water program to be discussed
WARREN -- The status of Trumbull County's storm water management program will be discussed next week.
The Trumbull County Storm Water Management Committee will meet at 11 a.m. Tuesday in the county commissioners meeting room in the County Administration building on High Street downtown.
The commissioners in 2003 designated the Trumbull County Soil & amp; Water Conservation District as the county administrator to develop and implement a five-year storm water management program as mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Committee members expected to attend Tuesday include the SWCD, county planning department, engineer's department, sanitary engineer's department, prosecutor's office and health district.
The program pertains to urbanized areas in the county as designated by the 2000 Census. Trumbull County's program includes 16 municipalities and townships, mostly in the southern part of the county, said Mike Wilson, SWCD executive director.
Meanwhile, Alexander T. Bobersky of Warren has been elected to the executive board for a two-year term with the Crossroads Resource Conservation and Development Council Inc.
Bobersky, who retired after 30 years of public service, 24 years of that working for the city of Warren, has devoted much of his life to conservation and economic development, said Richard Houk, a Trumbull SWCD supervisor and fellow council member.
Crossroads is a nonprofit organization that assists people in properly utilizing, conserving and protecting their natural resources to enhance environmental and economic conditions.
