A newly appointed city task force will begin working Thursday to develop a recommendation on how the city’s trash service should operate.
The city’s Solid Waste Task Force will meet at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at City Hall to discuss options for how the city should operate its trash and recycling services. City commissioners have asked the group to look at issues including privatization of the city-operated service, a new curbside recycling program and the use of automated trucks that could require people to start using special plastic carts instead of standard trash cans.
The task force is expected to meet for the next several months to discuss the issues. The meetings are open to the public.
