ON MONDAY THE CITY COUNCIL OF SIOUX CITY WILL CONSIDER THE THIRD READING OF A MEASURE THAT WOULD INCREASE FEES FOR TRASH AND RECYCLING COLLECTIONS IN TOWN.

THERE’S ALSO A POSSIBILITY THE DISCOUNT FOR SENIOR CITIZENS WILL BE ELIMINATED IN THE FUTURE.

THE COUNCIL HAS BEEN HOPING THE IOWA LEGISLATURE WOULD PASS A BILL TO ALLOW FOR A SENIOR DISCOUNT, BUT CITY MANAGER BOB PADMORE SAYS THAT BILL WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED IN DES MOINES:

OC………IN SIOUX CITY. :21

LAST WEEK THE COUNCIL SEPARATED THE SENIOR DISCOUNT ELIMINATION FROM THE RATE INCREASE.

PADMORE SAYS THE CITY ATTORNEY IS CONTINUING TO RESEARCH IF IT’S LEGAL TO CONTINUE TO OFFER IT:

OC…….VIOLATING LAW. :19

THE COUNCIL IS ALSO PUTTING OFF ACTION ON SENDING NOTICE TO END WASTEWATER TREATMENT AGREEMENTS WITH SOUTH SIOUX CITY, SGT. BLUFF AND NORTH SIOUX CITY UNTIL MAY 20TH

OC…….TERMINATE THE AGREEMENTS. ;18
