of Parrottsville leaders, frustrated with what they perceive to be a lack of
interest or progress on the county government's relocation of the convenience
center in Parrottsville, voted on Thursday to shut down the household trash
collection site on March 1.
Town of Parrottsville officials voted unanimously at their Council meeting on
Thursday to, in effect, pressure county leaders to shut down the convenience
center at its current location and move it to another site, possibly on the new
stretch of Highway 321 behind Parrottsville Elementary School, within the next
to the vote, Town of Parrottsville Mayor Mary Keller said, “It's like the
county put us on hold. We had hoped to open (a new) ballpark by March.”
mayor said the stink from the dumpsters at the convenience center, green flies,
and even rats, prohibit local officials from completing construction of the
ball park on the site, including seeding the field, paving a road, and
completing fencing around the ballpark.
