SILVER HAIRED LEGISLATURE GIVES VOICE TO OLDER TEXANS

The Area Agency on Aging of Central Texas (AAACT), a program division of the Central Texas Council of Governments (CTCOG) is pleased to announce that Senior Central Texans wishing to be a delegate to the Texas Silver-Haired Legislature (TSHL) may begin filing for candidacy. The AAACT office is located at 2180 N. Main Street, Belton and will have forms and petitions available through the February 28, 2017 filing deadline. Completed forms must be returned to the AAACT office along with a $5.00 filing fee by February 28, 2017 at 5:00 p.m.

A total of 123 delegates will be selected through a statewide election to be held April 28, 2017. The TSHL is a non-partisan and non-profit organization which represents constituents who are sixty years of age and older. TSHL helps members of the Texas Legislature understand the problems facing the senior population and encourages them to seek solutions to those problems.

The goal of the TSHL is to motivate older citizens to realize that legislative involvement is a primary responsibility of effective citizenship: to develop a forum for older persons to discuss and debate pressing issues; to enhance the involvement and advocacy role of older Texans in legislative matters in their local communities; to actively participate in the legislative process through the introduction, discussion and passing of resolutions addressing major concerns and issues relevant to the senior population and to work for the passage of these resolutions in the regular Texas Legislature. TSHL members are not lobbyists, but rather work as non-partisan advocates.

Any individual seeking candidacy must be 60 years or older January 1, 2017, must be a resident of the seven-county CTCOG region (Bell, Coryell, Hamilton, Lampasas, Milam, Mills, and San Saba), must be a registered voter of the State of Texas, and must be willing and able to participate in all activities required and expected of TSH Legislators. All TSHL candidates, if elected as delegates, are responsible for their own expenses.

Interested persons wishing to file for candidacy may contact Margaret Matthews at the Area Agency on Aging of Central Texas at 800-447-7169 or (254) 770-2345 in order to secure a candidacy packet.

Notice of Receipt of Application and Intent to Obtain a New Municipal Solid Waste Permit Proposed Permit No. 2395

APPLICATION. City of Big Spring, 310 Nolan Street, Big Spring, Howard County, Texas 79720, owner/operator of a proposed Type I Municipal Solid Waste Landfill, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a permit authorizing the acceptance of residential and commercial municipal solid waste, as well as some non-hazardous Class 2 and Class 3 industrial waste. The landfill will be located approximately 1 mile South and 0.5 miles East of the intersection of Highway 350 and Old Colorado City Highway, Big Spring, Howard County, Texas 79720. The TCEQ received this application on December 23, 2016. The permit application is available for viewing and copying at the City of Big Spring, City Hall, 310 Nolan Street, Big Spring, Howard County, Texas 79720, and may be viewed online at http://www.team-psc.com/engineering-sector/solid-waste/tceq-permits/. The following website which provides an electronic map of the site or facility's general location is provided as a public courtesy and is not part of the application or notice: https://www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=32.299166&lng=- 101.430833&zoom=13&type=r. For exact location, refer to application.

ADDITIONAL NOTICE. TCEQ's Executive Director has determined the application is administratively complete and will conduct a technical review of the application. After technical review of the application is complete, the Executive Director may prepare a draft permit and will issue a preliminary decision on the application. Notice of the Application and Preliminary Decision will be published and mailed to those who are on the county-wide mailing list and to those who are on the mailing list for this application. That notice will contain the deadline for submitting public comments.

PUBLIC COMMENT/PUBLIC MEETING. You may submit public comments or request a public meeting on this application. The purpose of a public meeting is to provide the opportunity to submit comments or to ask questions about the application. TCEQ will hold a public meeting if the Executive Director determines that there is a significant degree of public interest in the application or if requested by a local legislator. A public meeting is not a contested case hearing.

OPPORTUNITY FOR A CONTESTED CASE HEARING. After the deadline for submitting public comments, the Executive Director will consider all timely comments and prepare a response to all relevant and material, or significant public comments. Unless the application is directly referred for a contested case hearing, the response to comments, and the Executive Director's decision on the application, will be mailed to everyone who submitted public comments and to those persons who are on the mailing list for this application. If comments are received, the mailing will also provide instructions for requesting reconsideration of the Executive Director's decision and for requesting a contested case hearing. A person who may be affected by the facility is entitled to request a contested case hearing from the commission. A contested case hearing is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court.

TO REQUEST A CONTESTED CASE HEARING, YOU MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS IN YOUR REQUEST: your name, address, phone number; applicant's name and permit number; the location and distance of your property/activities relative to the facility; a specific description of how you would be adversely affected by the facility in a way not common to the general public; a list of all disputed issues of fact that you submit during the comment period, and the statement "(I/we) request a contested case hearing." If the request for contested case hearing is filed on behalf of a group or association, the request must designate the group's representative for receiving future correspondence; identify by name and physical address an individual member of the group who would be adversely affected by the facility or activity; provide the information discussed above regarding the affected member's location and distance from the facility or activity; explain how and why the member would be affected; and explain how the interests the group seeks to protect are relevant to the group's purpose.

Following the close of all applicable comment and request periods, the Executive Director will forward the application and any requests for reconsideration or for a contested case hearing to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting. The Commission may only grant a request for a contested case hearing on issues the requestor submitted in their timely comments that were not subsequently withdrawn.

If a hearing is granted, the subject of a hearing will be limited to disputed issues of fact or mixed questions of fact and law that are relevant and material to the Commission's decision on the application submitted during the comment period.

MAILING LIST. If you submit public comments, a request for a contested case hearing or a reconsideration of the Executive Director's decision, you will be added to the mailing list for this application to receive future public notices mailed by the Office of the Chief Clerk. In addition, you may request to be placed on: (1) the permanent mailing list for a specific applicant name and permit number; and/or (2) the mailing list for a specific county. To be placed on the permanent and/or the county mailing list, clearly specify which list(s) and send your request to TCEQ Office of the Chief Clerk at the address below.

AGENCY CONTACTS AND INFORMATION.
