EMDC pays its debt to former municipal group

ELLSWORTH — After months of negotiations, the Eastern Maine Development Corp. (EMDC) has mailed a $53,190.04 check to a former municipal group.

The money was owed to the now dormant Penobscot Valley Refuse Disposal District (PVRDD), which had been attempting to collect the funds since December 2012.

The PVRDD was comprised of 28 towns in eastern Maine that met to develop solid waste disposal solutions for members.

The group became inactive in 1997.

EMDC assumed control of the funds once PVRDD went into limbo, saying it was worried the money might wind up in unclaimed funds.
