Tuesday evening during the City Council meeting, Advanced Disposal Services Operations Manager Dan Goulder along with Municipal Marketing Representative Amber Burnam presented a revision to residential trash pick-up schedules. The change, which will take effect November 1, will eliminate the Friday route.
Individuals on Benton Street and to the west will be moved to a Tuesday schedule while individuals on Hawthorne Drive and east will be switched to Wednesday.
"Basically we are tucking Friday into the existing days," said Burnam. "We tried to look at it from the perspective of wards, but there are too many units in certain wards to make that work functionally."
Goulder says individuals who will experience route changes will have a door hanger delivered to clarify instructions.
"We want everyone to know exactly what we are doing," said Goulder. " The change won't make a huge difference in hours. I expect only maybe an hour increase on Tuesday and Wednesday at most."
In addition to the route changes, an ordinance was also passed by the Council to change the speed limit on Maffrey Street to 25 mph instead of 20 mph.
Last but not least, individuals were appointed or re-appointed to boards. David Brown was appointed to the Revolving Loan Board. Jim Cerva, David Walker and Ed Powers were re-appointed to the Industrial Development Board.
