Let's see how fast Tim Neese solves this problem - It's his job to do so.

A good indicator of his problem solving skills as he seeks one of the most challenging problem solving jobs in the world today - mayor of an American city.

Because his job as the Solid Waste District Manager is to solve this problem. truthuser.

Few people know this is Tim's full time job - because it is essentially a no show job for him - Set up as a crony perk by the Commissioners.

Not only Tim Neese Tom...

The solid waste management district is overseen by a seven member board of directors consisting of:

  • Three Elkhart County Commissioners
  • An appointee of Elkhart County Commissioners who must be elected in the county
  • A representative of the Elkhart County Council
  • The Mayor of Elkhart representing the largest municipality in the county
  • A member of the Elkhart City Council representing the largest legislative body in the county



    And just as a counter to your obvious dislike for Mr. Neese...

    Through the efforts of the solid waste management district, Elkhart County is one of the top districts in the state with the highest recycling percentages.

Sounds like for a "no show job", he's not doing too bad.

Although the article did not say anything about this, we have to wonder if the car dealership wanted those recycling bins removed because of the crap that people were leaving OUTSIDE them.   For example---the other day, we saw that some "good samaritan" had left their old ratty, nasty, narly, pee-stained mattress and box springs next to one of the recycle containers.

Since Goodwill took away some of their drop off locations in past few years, there were fewer places for people to get rid of their JUNK.   So, what did people start doing since there were fewer Goodwill locations?  They started leaving their JUNK at these recycling locations.

If that's why the car dealership wanted the bins removed, we don't blame them.

As is usual, and if this is the reason for the dealership wanting the bins removed, a few bad apples ruin things for the majority.

I have to agree to some degree with LyEnda and you don't know how much that pains me. I too have seen mattress left outside these bins elsewhere. We need accept that some can find no other means of disposal for whatever reason and will discard here, there, and everywhere. Is it cheaper for the county to then pick these items up willy nilly elsewhere or in the long run is it more effective to provide a central location? Now before you say that's what the landfill is for.....when was the last time you tried to enter the landfill with a mattress or grandma's hand me down TV lashed to the roof of your car ?

Maybe it's time we ask for at least one Saturday a month like hazardous are afforded to facilitate mattress amnesty day?

I have toured many of the big factory manufacturing programs and been involved in assisting some myself.  I give the credit  to the factory management for doing these types of programs.   Seen some good ideas and good management executed some pretty good programs.  With the huge amount of industrial production - It's no surprise that the local factories have done the most and good for them.  They deserve the credit not Tim.

How could Tim do anything?  Tim has no background in process engineering,  organizational management or grant writing.  His forte' was limousine driving and kissing keester - Still is.   Neese is devoid of invention or innovation.  The most interesting thing he ever did was to go all tinfoil hat crazy on non binding United Nations outreach programs.

Some of the Democrats in the Legislature in power like B. Patrick Bauer and the former Craig Fry also had well paying No-Show jobs too - From Ivy-Tech.  Hey the State funds Ivy Tech - Follow their paycheck back to their own funding bills!  Isn't that neat?  Both parties are fundamentally corrupt.

Never did I hear that Tim Neese was contributing any sort of grant writing or technical assistance.  I have inside information on what District Management is supposed to do because my first Graduate Intership was with The Monroe County Solid Waste Management District.

I never imagined when I was 22 years old that this would be the best government agency I would work for in my life that was run in fact better than some of the private sector companies I worked for.  Incredibly passionate hard working people - doing an awesome job.  I was so young and naive I thought that all government was like this - HAH!

Monroe County developed a recycling center, paint recycling center and hazardous materials processing facility that was treasured by the community.  Just like Elkhart County they ran their own landfill but it was run instead of for the benefit of the trash haulers - It was run for the benefit of the citizens with convenient tipping stations in rural areas and pay per bag fees rather than just fixed costs.  It was so well run and created many jobs - Especially the recycling center - Jobs right out of thin air at a lower cost of job production than the private sector!

These days with prices where they are - A government run recycling center could kill it....Give higher prices to consumers and recycle so much more by subsidizing itself with extra revenue.

If the citizens actually knew WHY the Districts were created by the State and what their primary mission is (It isn't recycling - That is #2) - It would make your skin crawl like it does mine..to see what the crony corruption has done to the people.  I guess ignorance of who rips you off and how they rip you off if you don't understand it - is a form of bliss that I want no part of.

I am not saying I will dislike Tim in the future if he kicks it up a notch and actually lead and pull a Teddy Roosevelt once he gets into an Executive power position.  Unlike in the State House - The buck can stop with him.

He's a reasonably intelligent guy from what I have seen and listens to votes well, but he has never done anything with that skill other than mollification.  I would roll the dice on him versus Moore - No government is better than corrupt government but we need a change to good government if possible.  The Odds of Neese pulling this off are slim.

Like I said - Show me something Neese...do something positive with your life - Just once!
