Discussion regarding a Tire Collection Policy at our transfer site. It was suggested that unimproved property owners should be able to drop off tires also if they want to purchase a transfer site sticker. It was also suggested that those wishing to get rid of tires should first pay for it at the offices if they can, which is better than having the attendant dealing with it. Motion by Balmes and seconded by Little to accept the Tire Collection Policy as presented, with the above changes. All ayes, motion carried.

TIRE COLLECTION POLICY AT TRANSFER SITE
To Take Effect: January 10, 2011

In an effort to help keep our community of Beaver Creek Township clean and in an effort to keep tires from being left in the woods etc., the township has started a new program whereby residents can turn in old and abandoned tires at our transfer site for a charge of $3.50 per tire which will help towards our cost of getting rid of these tires and transportation to a facility to get rid of said tires. Through tire cleanup programs in the past, we have rid hundreds of tires from our community, but we do not believe that there will be future summer tire cleanup programs.

At a Special Meeting held November 15, 2010 the following motion was made:

Motion by Balmes and seconded by Hartman to take in 4 tires per year from improved property owners at the transfer site at a charge of $3.50 per tire, for a 12 month trail period. All ayes, motion carried.

The motion has stated that we can go ahead with the new tire program, but rules are now needed to help implement the program. A policy was implemented January 10, 2011, to help with the collection of used tires at our transfer site. They are as follows:

                a. Tires must be delivered to transfer site, and unloading them and paying the $3.50 charge per tire must not interfere with garbage removal being brought in by residents. Resident will place tires where instructed by attendant.
                b. Only 4 tires per year per sticker.
                c. Payment should be made at the township offices during regular business hours. Resident would then be issued a receipt to take to the transfer site with their tires and present to the attendant showing payment has been made. If this cannot be done and resident wants to make payment at the transfer site, payment must be made by check, payable to Beaver Creek Township, or if cash, the exact amount must be given to attendant, he will not have the ability to make change.
                d. Tire information regarding the number of tires, name of resident bringing in tires and amount of money received must be kept by attendant. The money and information must be given to the secretary on Monday or Thursday mornings by attendant.
                e. No tires full of water.
                f. Only tires from automobiles or like vehicles. No tractor/equipment tires.
                g. No rims.
                h. Unimproved property owners can drop off tires at the transfer site if they first purchase a transfer site sticker from the township.
