City Council Approves Garbage Ordinance

As expected, Ruston’s Board of Aldermen approved unanimously a revised ordinance at last night’s meeting relative to the city’s collection of garbage, trash, and refuse.

Public Works Director Darryll Caraway said the final draft differed from what was originally introduced. One change is that since residential customers would receive pickup once weekly instead of twice, they could obtain a second container.

Mayor Ronny Walker also noted that changes were made in the procedure for commercial garbage pickup, as that part of the ordinance hadn’t been revised in some time.

In other business, the council approved several dozen budget amendments for the fiscal year ended 9/30/16. Notable was $567 thousand in spending for acquisition of industrial park property, $523 thousand for recycling, and $1.1 million in revenues from oil and gas property leases.

See here the complete list.

    Same price for half the service. Sounds like government efficiency at its best.
