CLINTON — Commissioner Ken Buchanan reported during last week's Monday’s city council meeting workers would complete city brush pick-up from the recent ice storm, and city crews would move on to other work.
“The guys are still picking up brush,” Buchanan said. “This week would be it.”
Barring another ice storm, city brush pick-up will resume in March with the start of the city’s regular yard waste pick-up program.
“So, I ask everybody to get their brush out to the streets so we can get it picked up this week,” Buchanan said.
The city also has returned the city yard waste facility to its regular 3-5 p.m. hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Placed on file for the next meeting, engineering contract fees of $49,100 to the Farnsworth Group for Kirkwood Drive pavement patching, and demolition bids for property at 1003 E. Washington Street from Nelson Excavating, $24,149; Affordable Demolition, $7,998; Clancy Coleman Excavating, $9,986; A.J.’s Custom Contracting, Inc., $16,000, and Meuser Construction & Excavating, Inc., $8,805.
The council also approved city ordinance 1531 approving the supplemental site location application and granting local site approval for Stericycle. The ordinance makes it possible for Stericycle to expand its operation. The company specializes in the disposal of medical waste.
