Sullivan towns making room for debris from zombie houses

MONTICELLO – Sullivan County has adjusted limits for accepting debris through its municipal cleanup initiative.  One goal is to encourage cleanup of decrepit or “zombie” properties.

County Manager Joshua Potosek told the county legislature’s Public Works Committee on Tuesday they are working on a formula for each town and village.

“There’s funds in the ’18 budget for that,” Potosek said.  “We’ve tasked planning with coming up with a program to develop that, so coming before you, some of the plans in progress being with the program that you would adopt and we then would solicit from the towns and villages for eligible properties, so you should see something getting done this year.”

If the current trend continues with winter weather and the consumption of road salt, officials said they could exceed their amount of road salt and may need additional funding to purchase more. As of now, though, the county has a sufficient amount in reserve.
