Elections bring happiness to sanitation facility leadership

Date Posted: 2004-07-16

Three committee members with the Kurahama Sanitation Facility Association are meeting to discuss a new incinerator location.

Where to place the new trash burning incinerator has been an election season topic, as well as what type unit should be allowed and setup.

The members were elected by Okinawa City, Ginowan City and Chatan Town, with chairman named as Asachiyo Kuwae. The operations boss for the sanitation facility is Okinawa Mayor Masakazu Nakazone, who says the location has already been decided for his city.

Conference attendees agreed, but Ikehara area community Chief Isamu Tamaki isn’t happy with the answer. The current incinerator is in his community, and he says “Ikehara people need to investigate and check the environmental issues, researching everything around Ikehara area. There may need to be payments for inconveniences to residents.”

Chairman Asachiyo acknowledges the concerns, noted “we would be happy to be concerned about these things. I’ll provide answers after we meet again.” He says there’s a lot to study about putting the new incinerator in place, because he needs to hire new people, and “we need to determine how many people should be put into the operation of this new machine, and we need some specialists to teach us how to use it.”

That wasn’t the committee’s answer before. It has changed, and residents are demanding answers. They say “there is somebody lying. Who? The meeting was never clear, and environmental research has before had different answers.

Nakasone wants to have another meeting on the new incinerator, but doesn’t say when. One problem is acknowledged by all is that something needs to happen soon, because the trash is piling up.
