Monday is decision day at the Shelby County Commission. An interim successor to the late Trustee Paul Mattila will be selected by the commission from among ten applicants, most of whom were interviewed en masse by the commission in a committee session last Wednesday

Among the chief contenders are current acting Trustee Debra Gates, who is presumed to have the support of the commission’s five Republicans; and Bobby Grandberry, Regina Morrison-Newman, and Lee Ester Redmund-Terrall, all of whom have support among the body’s eight Democrats, with Grandberry and Morrison-Newman considered to have the strongest chances.

The commission will also consider a proposal by Commissioner Steve Mulroy to endorse state legislation creating voluntary redemption centers and offering a 5-cent per bottle refund on empty beverage containers. The legislation, designed to resolve litter problems and to assist bottle manufacturers in recycloing efforts, would re-establish what was once a standard statewide arrangement for recycling used containers.
