Sartell To Let Garbage Collection System Stay The Same
SARTELL - The decision to stick with their current garbage collection system, or move to a single-hauler system in Sartell is once again brought to the table.
Back in February the council voted to have the city work with the current haulers to come up with new polices they could adopt.
The city currently uses four licensed haulers, which has been the same since 2008.
At that meeting, several concerns were about public safety, road conditions, and should the residents choose who collects their garbage.
City Administrator Mary Degiovanni says they have received many suggestions from the current haulers which would help guide the council in some general direction.
During tonight's (Tuesday) city council meeting the council discussed the multiple suggestions in hopes to get a better sense of direction on this issue.
Some of the suggestions were to limit the number of haulers, move collection to one side, and restrict collection days.
After further discussion the council felt there was no need to change the current ordinance at this time.
The topic could be brought back up for discussion at a later time if the council feels changes need to be made.
Sauk Rapids, Waite Park and St. Joseph use a single-hauler system.
