Westport Public Works Director Stephen Edwards will serve as an ad hoc member of the Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority to vote on issues concerning the Bridgeport project, Gov. M. Jodi Rell announced today.
The Bridgeport Project provides solid waste disposal and recycling services to 20 Connecticut municipalities in Fairfield and New Haven counties. The project consists of a 2,250 ton-per-day mass-burn trash-to-energy facility, eight transfer stations, two landfills, a regional recycling center and the Children’s Garbage Museum.
“Steve brings a wealth of experience to this position and his dedication to the community is a logical extension of the service he has provided to the citizens of Connecticut for more than 20 years,” Rell said in a statement.
“His concern for the well-being of our state, combined with his professional background, makes him well-qualified to serve on the authority as an ad hoc member.”
Edwards, an Easton resident, has been public works director since 1985 and is a member of the Easton Conservation Committee.
