What is the Community Advisory Group (CAG)?
As part of the Solid Waste Management Plan, four Community Advisory Groups (CAGs) were established in the respective Community Districts that will host Converted Marine Transfer Stations (MTS). The CAG was established in 2007 to advise the Mayor and other elected officials on community-related concerns regarding the development, construction and operation of the respective Converted Marine Transfer Stations (MTS).
The E. 91st Street MTS CAG meets regularly with representatives from the Department of Sanitation and other City agencies involved in the construction and future operation of the MTS.
Who are CAG’s members?
The E. 91st Street MTS Community Advisory Group (CAG) is made up of ten members: four appointed by the Mayor, three appointed by Manhattan Borough President, and three appointed by the local Council Member.
