Mon. 7:25 p.m.: Waste district investigation cost $21,000

WARREN — An investigatory report some members of the board governing the Geauga-Trumbull Solid Waste Management District refuse to release to the public cost $21,000 to produce, according to an invoice.

The claims district employees made against the former director of the district were investigated by the Taft Stettinius & Hollister law firm of Cleveland, which is where the board’s attorney, Greg O’Brien, works.

Trumbull County commissioners Mauro Cantalamessa, Frank Fuda and Dan Polivka said they support releasing the publicly funded report. Polivka said after the board’s last meeting, the other three members of the board that oversee the district, Geauga County Commissioners James W. Dvorak, Timothy C. Lennon and Ralph Spidalieri, are heeding O’Brien’s advice and refusing to release the report.

Attempts to reach the Geauga County commissioners today were unsuccessful. A person who answered the phone said the men only come in occasionally.
