Subject: [CPEO-MEF] SOLID WASTE: Norfolk Naval Shipyard and the Southeastern Virginia Public Service Authority
Va. veterans and defense affairs secretary: Withdrawing from SPSA could hurt Navy

Virginia Veterans and Defense Affairs Secretary John Harvey Jr. raised red flags last week when he sent eight localities letters saying Norfolk Naval Shipyard could be harmed if they withdraw from a trash agreement.

"Making it more costly for NNSY to do business to the potential detriment of the Navy, and the shipyard's 9,000 employees who live throughout the Hampton Roads region, is the wrong message to send at this time," Harvey wrote.

The Southeastern Public Service Authority agreement expires in January 2018. Eight localities - Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Franklin, Southampton County and Isle of Wight County - have to decide whether they will continue to participate. And if they do, they also have to figure out which of three companies to work with.
