Council appoints five to FROST

FRISCO – On Tuesday, the Frisco Town Council appointed five members to the Frisco Recreation Open Space and Trails Advisory Committee (FROST), formerly the Frisco Open Space Advisory Committee (known as FOSAC).

Town officials recently approved expanding FROST to include direction on recreation, parks and trails issues.

Seven people expressed interest in the committee’s five vacancies.

Council members re-appointed Kathryn Grohusky to a three-year term. John Fayhee and Mark Richmond also were appointed to three-year terms.

Jim Skvorc and Dave Owens will serve two-year terms.

Frisco plans for annual cleanup

FRISCO – The town of Frisco and the Summit Recycling Project (SRP) are joining forces to make this year’s Clean Up Day a model event for diverting waste.

“Moving toward Zero Waste” is the theme of Frisco’s 2003 Clean Up Day, May 10 – a day when local business owners, homeowners and citizens will work together to pick up trash throughout the town.

The SRP staff will oversee the distribution and collection of all recycling bins. They will monitor the bins at the event and then collect data on the total waste stream at the event.

Event officials will ask volunteers to separate recyclables as they collect trash around town.

Frisco will provide only reusable cups for the cold drinks served that day, as the town works toward a zero-

disposable-cup policy for all its events. The town also plans to plant trees based on a calculation to offset carbon dioxide emissions caused by transportation and electricity associated with the event. The pilot project results will be publicized in statewide sustainability publications.

Volunteers should meet at Walter Byron Park at 9 a.m. for job assignments and trash bag distribution. The town will provide free coffee and donuts. The town also will provide a free barbecue lunch – including a prize drawing – at 11:30 a.m. to cleanup crews.

Also during the annual cleanup day, Big Brothers and Big Sisters will station a truck at the town hall from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to collect clothing, household items and reusable furniture.

Additionally, Frisco will provide curb-pick-up trash service for Summit County residents within the Frisco area, Frisco Heights, Frisco Terrace, Wiborg Park, Evergreen and Bill’s Ranch. Refuse must be at the curb by 8 a.m.

Town officials encourage those residents to join the town in the annual cleanup effort and festivities. They also ask citizens to clean up private property before the Saturday event, so volunteers can concentrate on public lands that day.

Frisco and SRP will provide trash bins by the SRP drop-off center, adjacent to the Frisco Fire Station, on Tuesday, May 6, for trash and recyclables. They will not accept tires, stumps, paints, hazardous chemicals, construction waste or junk cars or boats. Town crews will not pick up landscape waste.

SRP will accept clean landscape waste (no stumps), refrigerators with freon and doors removed at $10 per refrigerator, and appliances and scrap metal at $10 per piece. Tires are accepted at $3 per tire or $5 per tire with rims. Electronic waste will also be accepted at the Recycling Project for the following fees: $5 per CPU, $10 per monitor and $15 per TV.

All other electronic items are free.
