BONNE TERRE – The Bonne Terre City Council hasn’t made a decision to privatize trash collection but they will be opening sealed bids from private solid waste collection companies during their meeting Monday night.
During last month’s meeting, the council agreed to let IESI prepare a proposal for the city. Other companies were also allowed to submit bids before the city’s new budget year begins Oct. 1.
The agenda states the council will not be selecting a company at this time but the council will open and discuss bids.
The meeting, which is open to the public, will be held at 6 p.m. at city hall.
Other items on the agenda include discussing an ordinance re-establishing the policy for utility services offered to properties outside the city limits.
The council will discuss an ordinance that would make spot zoning within the city limits illegal. The council will vote on an ordinance changing the zoning of 800 Cherry Street from R-2 to C-2 for storage sheds.
The council will also open bids for an accounting firm and discuss a policy for water adjustments that will go into effect immediately after passage.
