City Manager's Spotlight


June 1st marks the kick-off date of the city’s pilot program for valet trash pick-up. City refuse crews will be picking up trash containers, from a pre-determined location on each of 50 properties where owners have signed up for the paid service. The city received over 100 applications from interested property owners, however, the initial selection of 50 is the limit decided upon for the pilot program that will continue through May 31, 2017. A comprehensive analysis of the program will be made throughout the one-year trial period and provided to the Commissioners for discussion at public meetings.
The new restrictions contained in the refuse ordinance that goes into effect June 1st include:
  • Rigid or metal containers placed curbside no earlier than 6:00 p.m. the day prior to regular collection.
  • Containers must be removed from city property (curb location) by 9:00 p.m. on collection day.
  • Disposable trash bags may be set out curbside on collection day no earlier than 5:00 a.m.
Options for part-time residents, renters or those who cannot meet the new requirements include:
  • Work with neighbors or property managers to coordinate refuse placement times and receptacle removal times.
  • Take refuse back to a primary home for disposal.
There is a civil penalty with a fine of $25 for violations of this ordinance. However, it is more important for compliance and to keep our city streets clean and safe. An educational approach with friendly reminders will be emphasized. Please be respectful of your neighbors and visitors to our beautiful city.
