The Board of Health will likely hire an environmental attorney at its next meeting Sept. 4, chairwoman Anita Ballesteros said.
Last week, board members interviewed Mark Roberts and Kenneth Whittaker, both Boston-based attorneys. The attorney will advise board members as they decided whether to reopen the permitting process for the waste transfer station at 115 Washington Street, which Covanta Holding Corporation bought from Casella Waste Systems, Inc. this spring.
Board members have said the current permit, which was drafted in 2004, is not adequate.
