The initial Board of Directors will have the added responsibility of guiding the construction of the waste management facilities, establishing costs for users, initiating stakeholder communication and involvement, developing the Board operating policies, approving the By-laws and essentially building the Authority.
It is expected that the nature of the Board will evolve as the waste management system becomes more firmly established. The Board at the outset will play a larger management role, but over the first term a shift towards a predominantly policy making Board of Directors should be anticipated. During the start-up period, the Authority Board will have engaged professional staff to manage and operate the facilities.
In order to most adequately represent all parties, and to maintain a manageable size board, the board would then be comprised of seventeen (17) directors, twelve (12) voting members, the Chairperson and four (4) non-voting members. Every town, community or local service district within the central region will have a representative on the Board of Directors, nominated directly or through a regional representation. The Minister of Municipal Affairs will appoint board members.
Voting Members – 13 responsibility of guiding the construction of the waste management facilities, establishing costs for users, initiating stakeholder communication and involvement, developing the Board operating policies, approving the By-laws and essentially building the Authority.
One (1) member from each of the regional waste management zones 7
One (1) member from the large towns; Gander and Grand Falls-Windsor 2
One (1) member from town’s with no transfer stations 1
One (1) member from Norris Arm & Norris Arm North 1
One (1) member for the three (3) towns over 3000 population 1
The Lieutenant-Governor in Council shall appoint a chairperson. 1(Chairperson will only vote to break a tie)
Other officials such as Vice-Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer, will be appointed from the elected board but these officers will still represent their communities or regions.
- All voting Board members would be selected from elected municipal councilors or an appointed representative of the Local Service District
- Each transfer station region will have a committee made up of elected officials and the chair of that committee will serve on the Central Regional Service Board.
- responsibility of guiding the construction of the waste management facilities, establishing costs for users, initiating stakeholder communication and involvement, developing the Board operating policies, approving the By-laws and essentially building the Authority. Larger towns will appoint one from elected officials.
- Three (3) towns over 3000 population will jointly appoint a board member but this member must alternate between the three towns.
- Norris Arm and Norris Arm North will appoint one member which will alternate between the two communities. (For the Interim, one representative will sit with the board and the other with the Technical Committee. The person sitting with the board will carry the vote.)
The Authority will recognize the Technical committee. The Chairperson of the Technical Committee will be asked to sit as a non-voting board member.
Terms of Members
With the exception of the chairperson, a member appointed to a board shall serve a term of 2 years with the right to be re-appointed for a further term of 2 years and shall be ineligible for a further re-appointment until at least 2 years after the expiration of his or her last term as a member of the board.
