The Issue

Curbside recycling is almost here, at long last. HOWEVER, the city councilors are waiting to see if there is strong public support for curbside recycling. They are holding a public input meeting on Monday, August 30, at 680 N. Motel Blvd. Room 225, at 6 pm. Discussion will include recycling fee options.

It is crucial that supporters of curbside recycling make a strong showing at this meeting.
