Waste Hauling Overhaul Ordinance May Be In Trouble


Even with new revisions, Springfield’s proposed trash overhaul ordinance appears to be in trouble.

 

A spot check of aldermen by the State Journal-Register finds six of the ten are opposed to billing for garbage collection through City Water Light and Power.

 

Only three are firmly in favor, including the two sponsors, Cory Jobe and Doris Turner.  At least five votes would be needed to approve the plan.

 

The revised ordinance, which lowers the base rate for trash pickup and makes it easier for customers to temporarily halt service without being billed, goes before the City Council committee-of-the-whole tonight.
