soon. With agricultural land value tied to things like corn and other prices and thus fixed at a rise or fall of three percent, residential housing was and is different.
“It depends on market value,” Barna said of those who might happen to own non-agricultural land in Thorp. With interest rates down somewhat from the 1970s, Barna had a market-driven observation to make.
“Banks are in there to make money, they’re not there to please you,” he said of the practice of charging a certain percentage of money (i.e. “interest”) to borrow the same. Pending a complete assessment roll the, the Town of Thorp’s open book will be Tuesday, October 19, 2021 from 5p.m. to 7p.m., while its Board of Review will be Tuesday, November 2, 2021 from 8p.m. to 10p.m.
First up after calling the regular town meeting back to order was a new hire. Roads man Loren Gulcynski has left for employment to the south in Willard, while Edson worker Jerry Nowobielski was hired part-time by the town, to start as soon as able after the town meeting.
Meanwhile and also reported at the September meeting for Thorp was that Express Disposal had been sold to GFL.
“Will Express still run the plant?” Chairman Andruszkiewicz wondered aloud of the change made official as of August 1 affecting Tieman Avenue and local customers. The website for GFL Environmental at www.gflenv.com answered some questions readers might be asking just now.
First, Express customers can count on service scheduling, prices, contracts and partnerships all remaining “business usual.”
Second, while things will remain “business as usual” for the present, the trucks will be getting a new logo and paint switch to go with the change. Employees will get new uniforms, and customer invoices will have “GFL branding.”
Third, although the name and look will change, customers “can rely on (GFL) to continue delivering the safe, high-quality local service” they’ve come to know and expect from Express. Customers can continue to contact their local branch, and the new website is gflenv. com.
“If you need support, service information, or any other details about GFL, this is where you’ll find them.,” the website states.
Finally, the new owner of Express faciliteies states that “as a GFL customer, you’ll have access to our online customer portal, MyAccount, where you can easily manage your services, billing, payment preferences and more from one central source. More information and step-by-step setup guidelines can be found on our website at gflenv.com/creating-your-myaccount/ and you’ll be able to link your account with your new account number which will appear on your first GFL invoice.”
Welcome to the future with GFL Environmental, now taking over for Express Disposal for local trash and recycling issues.
