Orange County sets its debris pickup schedule

first_img UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Please enter your comment! From Orange County Commissioner Bryan Nelson’s OfficeDebris Pick-upOrange County has initiated its three debris removal and three monitoring contracts.  Contract forces continue to ramp up to collect storm debris within unincorporated Orange County from public rights-of-way over the next several weeks. Storm debris should be placed along the County Public rights-of-way for pickup.  Roadways, sidewalks, drains, fire hydrants and mailboxes must be kept clear of debris.Vegetative debris sites cannot accept mixed debris.  Whether placing for pick-up or dropping off it is important to separate vegetative storm debris (tree limbs, branches, and another organic debris) from storm-related construction debris (shingles, lumber, drywall, fences, etc.) and/or other household goods (appliances).  These will be collected separately, and if not separated may not be picked up.  Also, NEVER mix household garbage with storm debris.Pick-Up ScheduleA “first pass” of vegetative debris pickup began on Thursday, September 14, 2017, and should be completed no later than October 13, 2017.  Vegetative debris (shrubbery, logs, limbs, and stumps) may be picked up before construction debris.  Once this “first pass” is completed, crews will return to neighborhoods to pick up additional debris as residents continue their clean-up efforts.  Crews should complete all storm-related debris pick-up by November 1, 2017.  Bagged yard waste will not be accepted at the Citizen Drop-off sites.  Solid Waste (Normal Yard Waste) Pick-UpSolid Waste is continuing with their regular bagged and bundled yard waste pickup.  Vegetative debris (tree limbs, shrubs etc.) bagged and/or bundled will be collected during normally scheduled yard waste collection days. Please adhere to the specified collection guidelines.  For detailed information please visit http://www.ocfl.net/?tabid=371 or by calling 407-836-5515.Gated/Private Community Property Debris RemovalDebris will only be removed from private property in the case of severe damage, per the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) policy. If the debris is an immediate threat to residents, State or local government may enter private property to remove debris to eliminate threats to life, public health, and safety.Most importantly, Orange County will not remove debris from homes within a private gated community. The County will coordinate debris removal within County rights-of-way.  A representative of the community, or the president of the association or the association’s management firm, should contact Orange County by calling 311 to initiate this process. A representative of the County will then respond to the contact, with detailed information on how the process will need to proceed.  Once the request is received, communities will be contacted beginning the week of September 18, 2017.The gated/private community could opt to take the debris to a citizen site upon approval by Orange County. A letter will be provided to the community and its contractor specifying the designated citizen site and start and end dates for the debris removal. No debris should be discarded prior to the start date indicated in the letter to the community.A second option would require a County representative and a County contractor to coordinate a visit to the site to determine the amount of debris that needs to be removed. From there, the County’s contractor may provide a time for the community to move the debris to a location so that Orange County will be able to receive it. Residents of MunicipalitiesCounty crews will not be picking up debris on municipal road rights-of-way.  Residents of cities and municipalities should contact their city or town hall for debris pick-up information.Commercial Property ResidencesIf residents within a community do not own the property, such as a trailer park, manufactured home community or condominium building, the community is not eligible to participate in this program. These communities are considered commercial and not eligible for debris pick up support.Resident Drop-off (Citizen Sites)County residents may also drop off vegetative storm debris at designated sites from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily.  There is no charge to Orange County residents for the use of these sites (proof of residency will be required). The County will not allow debris disposal by commercial contractors or landscaping companies at these sites.  These sites may be busy, so please be considerate of others when off-loading debris.  Please follow entry and exit signs posted at the site.Citizen sites are located at:Barnett Park – 4801 W Colonial Dr.Conway Water Treatment Plant – 3590 Manatee St.Cypress Grove Park – 290 Holden Ave.Fort Christmas Park -1300 Fort Christmas Rd.Harrell Road – 8503 Trevarthon Rd.Meadowoods Park – 1751 Rhode Island Woods Cir.Northwest Water Reclamation Facility – 701 W McCormick Rd.Rose Place Park – 8200 Old Winter Garden Rd.Across from Renaissance Senior Center – 3800 S.

Independent regional TV station hounded, might have to close

We call for an end to all activity designed to prevent this station from operating normally.”The head of the station, Alexei Sklyarov, told Reporters Without Borders that the harassment began in mid-February, immediately after he agreed to lead the newly-created local branch of the Voters’ League, a volunteer organization for monitoring elections created in the wake of last December’s demonstrations.The day after the league’s creation, Puls TV was suddenly targeted by a wave of inspections. The first was a complaint filed in Azov by someone identified only by the surname of Galchuk, which claimed that the station’s equipment was having a “negative effect” on the health of those living in its vicinity. The Rostov regional branch of the federal communications agency Roskomnadzor immediately ordered an inspection of the building and told Puls TV to provide a number of documents. Two other inspections were carried out the same day by firemen who had an order for the building’s demolition.Although Puls TV has occupied the same premises for 22 years, the building’s owner is now suddenly refusing to renew its lease, which is expires today. Sklyarov said all this persecution must have been prompted by his involvement in the Voters’ League.The harassment comes amid continuing tension resulting from the post-electoral protests. After a number of apparent attempts to defuse the situation, the authorities are again reacting aggressively to criticism.In a separate development, Andrei Kolomoisky, a journalist based in the northwestern city of Vyborg, was charged on 26 March with “inciting extremism and hatred” for posting a doctored video of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on his blog on the website of the newspaper he works for, Vyborgskiye Vedomosti.The video, a doctored version of a speech Putin gave on the eve of the 4 December parliamentary elections, shows him urging the electorate to vote for the ruling United Russia party because of its “empty promises” and because “poverty (…) is experiencing stable growth.” Kolomoisky is facing a possible five year jail sentence.

The results of a study released Wednesday by Washington, D.C.-based Callahan & Associates found that a whopping 96 percent of the 200-plus credit union executives the company surveyed across 46 states reported closing delays related to TRID over the past six months.Callahan found a  variety of reasons at the heart of the delays. Half cited new lender workflow between title companies and members, as well as refinement of processes of procedures as the primary cause of closing delays. A quarter cited compliance issues related to settlement, systems, members, and mortgage disclosure. Sixteen percent said that their own mortgage loan origination and core processing systems were not fully equipped to handle necessary updates, while 6 percent said their members were unable to provide documentation and other information in a timely manner.Additionally, open-ended survey responses noted timing issues with disclosures, difficulties integrating mortgage origination systems with core processors, and challenges with title companies, realtors, and other settlement agents, Callahan stated.All told, more than half of the respondents said new TRID regulations have added five or more days to mortgage closing, while the average number of days to close, according to respondents is 42. The industry’s ideal average closing goal is 31 days.Despite the delays, the vast majority of respondents said closing issues were generally easy to handle. Nearly 80 percent said they are able to deliver disclosures quickly, with 20 percent saying they deliver three days before the mortgage closing, the absolute deadline for delivering disclosures.For most credit unions, the portfolio and secondary markets are significant origination factors, Callahan found. Eighty-three percent of respondents, in fact, said they originate loans to hold in their portfolio. But more two-thirds also actively originate for sale to the GSEs.  A minority of respondents — 11.3 percent — said they solely originate for sales to GSEs.

V. Nagarathna and Justice N. S. Sanjay Gowda observed,”It is necessary to remind ourselves that a child requires both, the mother and the father in jointly bringing up the child which would have a holistic impact on the overall growth of the child.”The Court further remarked,”This is because both parents have a joint responsibility in bringing up their children as each parent would contribute in a unique way to the mental, physical and emotional/psychological development of the child. Hence, whenever there is a separation between the parents, shared parenting would mean that the joint responsibility would continue subject to certain arrangements being put in place.”The background of the caseThe Court was hearing the appeals preferred by the wife and husband respectively assailing order dated 21.11.2014 passed in G.& W. case No.101 of 2012 by the III Additional Principal Judge, Family Court, Bengaluru.The said petition was filed by the wife (mother of minor child Aditya Rajiv Ratnam) under Sections 7 and 17 of the Guardians and Wards Act, 1890 (hereinafter referred to as ‘the Act’ for the sake of brevity) seeking appointment of herself as guardian of the minor child and to grant permanent custody to her. The said petition was contested by the husband/father of the child.The Family Court declared the mother as the guardian of the minor child Master Aditya Rajiv Ratnam and that the child shall continue to be under the care and custody of the mother.However, certain directions were issued regarding visitation rights for the respondent/father. Being aggrieved, both the parents of the child have preferred their respective appeals.The centre of controversy, which also was also a factor which caused a delay in the settlement of disputes between the parties in the instant case, was regarding custody of the minor child, Master Aditya Rajiv Ratnam.It may be noted that the parties were granted a decree of divorce by mutual consent by judgment dated 27/08/2020 subject to the terms agreed upon by them.Court’s ObservationThe Court was of the view that whenever the husband and wife seek to dissolve their marriage, the conflict over the custody of the child, particularly a minor child assumes significance.The Court took into account the fact that whenever there is opposition by a party for giving custody of the child to another party and vice versa, the conflict can become extreme and aggravated sometimes resulting in dilution of any settlement that could be arrived at between the parties to seek dissolution of their marriage.The Court also stressed that one cannot underestimate the fact that in the case of separation of parents on account of the dissolution of marriage by a decree of divorce, the children of the marriage are most affected physically, emotionally and their upbringing would take a beating.In this context, the Court remarked,”One of the ways to resolve the conundrum is, by the emerging concept of shared parenting. In some overseas jurisdictions, the concept of shared parenting has been in vogue and prevalent but not so well entrenched in India and has been ordered only in a handful of cases.”Notably, the Court said,”There is clear momentum in law towards shared parenting with the child in focus and the rights of the child being the over-riding factors rather than the rights of the separated parents. It would be ideal if the parents jointly submit a plan for shared parenting. In the alternative, the Court must exercise its parens patriae jurisdiction.”The Court acknowledged that fact that the jurisprudence on the custody of the minor children of separated parents has evolved over the decades and both parents are recognized as having equal responsibilities in the custody of their children and thus, the concept of shared parenting is gradually emerging in the legal firmament of India also.Also, the Court was of the view that the expression ‘best interest’ and ‘welfare of the child’ must be imbibed in the context in which the child is positioned between the parents. The facts and circumstances of each case would vary and what is good in one case, may not be good in the other case and vice versa.Significantly, the Court was of the view that,”The welfare principles which are in the interest of the child, assume importance. Therefore, prior to the passing of the decree of divorce, it is necessary to seek a parenting plan post-divorce from the parties themselves.”Further, while elaborating on the concept of Shared Parenting, the Court made the following observations:-* While preparing a joint parenting plan, care must be taken so that there is no instability or inconvenience caused to the child. Also the expression “joint” or “shared” would not mean mathematical exactitude or precision, as there must be pragmatism and innovation required at every stage.* The personal profile of the parent, their educational qualification, residence, economic and social status, etc., would be important factors while developing the joint parenting plan. As there is no legislation as such in India on shared parenting, the same must evolve with judicial interference, innovation and involvement in assessing the requirements of each child.* Over a period of time, the concepts of custody and visitation rights have transformed themselves into the responsibility of parents towards children.* A central theme of this transformation is the emphasis on parental responsibility which requires that the child should be treated as an individual having his or her own capabilities and limitations as well as independent opinions.* A child is not an appendage of his parents. The focus of attention must actually be on the child.Subsequently, the Court directed that shared parenting of the minor child between the parents would be in the following manner until the child attains eighteen years of age:-* At the beginning of the new academic year, assuming, that it commences on 1st June, two days prior to the commencement of the school, the child will move to the father’s residence and be with the father till 31st October. From 01st November, the child will be with the mother till 31st March or till the commencement of the summer vacation, whichever is later.* When the summer vacation commences, fifty per cent of the said vacation shall be spent by the child with the father in the initial part of the vacation and the subsequent period of the summer vacation will be spent with the mother (similar arrangement to continue during winter vacations)* Thus, during the months from June to October (five months), the child will be with the father and during the months from November to March (five months), the child will be with the mother.* During the aforesaid period, when the child is in the residence of one of the parents, the court said that other parent would have visitation rights, once in two weeks.* All information regarding the health of the child as well as information concerning the school and co-curricular activities, etc., shall be exchanged between the parents.* Both parents must ensure that the child is comfortable and at ease when residing with one of the parents or visiting the other parent. All care must be taken by the parents to ensure the psychological, social, educational and over-all growth and development of the child. In this regard, there must be a joint effort and co-operation between the parties.* The child’s birthday shall be celebrated by the parents jointly, as far as practicable or a consensus could be arrived at in consultation with the child.[We have not included all the directions issued by the Court, however, the important directions have been mentioned in this story.]Lastly, the Court said,”We hope and trust that the aforesaid directions would be scrupulously obeyed by the parents as we think they are in the best interest of the child and keeping in mind comfort, ease and the paramount interest of Aditya, the aforesaid directions have been issued. The same are made after eliciting the views of the minor child Aditya.”Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment] Next Storylast_img read more

2 dead after plane vanishes from radar and crashes near NC airport

first_imgdmadau/iStock(RALEIGH, N.C.) — Two people have been confirmed dead after a small plane vanished from radar and crashed.After hours of searching, authorities in North Carolina found the Piper PA-32-301 plane that vanished from radar near the Raleigh-Durham International Airport on Sunday night.The privately-owned aircraft was found on the ground near a hiking trail in the William B. Umstead State Park, east of the airport. There were two casualities found said Sgt. Michael Baker, North Carolina State Highway Patrol during a press conference.Crystal Feldman, VP of Communications, Government and Community Relations at the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority said details about the two victims could not be shared at this time.The National Transportation Safety Board — which participates in the investigation of aviation accidents — is investigating the crash.Air traffic controllers with the Federal Aviation Administration alerted the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority on Sunday at around 7:30 p.m. local time that radar contact was lost with a Piper PA32 approaching the airport, according to a statement from the FAA. The single-engine aircraft typically has around six seats.The Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority was advised that the plane had disappeared in the vicinity of William B. Umstead State Park. More than a dozen local and state agencies were on the ground in the area and overhead in the air searching for the aircraft since then, according to a press release from the airport authority.“Umstead State Park is 5,200 acres of dense forest, with few roads and little to no light,” said Michael Landguth, president and CEO of the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority. “Recovery efforts are extremely challenging in remote areas and it could take a long time to find this plane.”Authorities asked members of the public to avoid the area around the state park until further notice.The runway at Raleigh-Durham International Airport was shut down immediately after the FAA alert, but then reopened and resumed normal operations later that evening. Commercial operations remained normal Monday, according to the airport authority.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
