Boudreau elected chair
Linda Boudreau was elected chair of ecomaine Board
of Directors at the organization’s recent annual meeting.
ecomaine is the non-profit solid waste disposal company owned and
operated by 21 area municipalities and, until June 30 of this year,
was named Regional Waste Systems. She succeeds Jeffrey Jordan, former
city manager of South Portland.
Boudreau will be chair of 29 board members, an
annual budget of $25 million, and three major facilities –
a 100,000 megawatt waste-to-energy plant, a 240 acre landfill/ashfill
site, and the state’s largest recycling facility. During her
2006-2007 tenure, ecomaine will install the equipment for single
stream recycling technology with which, as former Recycling Committee
chair, she is very familiar. In addition, a new seven-acre landfill/ashfill
cell built with state-of-the-art environmental protection will open
and negotiations for the sale of electricity will also occur.
Anthony Plante of Windham will be vice president,
Duane Kline, of Portland will be treasurer, and Susan McGinty of
Cumberland will be secretary. All three served in the same positions
