An environmental management firm said at the city council meeting Monday that it wants to help the city put together an application to do a "site-specific assessment" of the McLouth Steel site on West Jefferson.

The Environmental Protection Agency Brownfields Assessment grant would assess areas of high priority, such as pollution sites, that could prevent development, John D'Addona, manager of Brownfield Services at Environmental Consulting & Technology Inc., said at the meeting.

If approved, the ECT would file the application to the city for free. However, if the city is awarded the grant, it still has to go through the bid process, D’Addona said.

A council study session to discuss the issue was set for 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 17. No official actions or votes are taken at council study sessions.

Despite previous indications, the council plans to discuss curbside recycling in mid-January.

I would LOVE curbside recycling. I would gladly pay a reasonable additional charge for the service.

What about our parks? Our parks are in terrible shape. Where does all our tax money go? The park at Westfield had one taken out? Any plans to replace it? The park on Newman st should be an embarrassment to al of us Trenton residents.
