As I look back on 2019, I’m proud of the work that our community has done to build a strong and thriving city—both now and for the generations to come. Here are just some of the highlights from the past year at City Hall.
At October’s meeting of City Council, we moved forward with a decision to establish a city-wide curbside organics collection program.
This is a huge step forward for our city and it will have a significant impact on extending the life of the landfill—an estimated additional 23 years. The current (and optional) green cart program has been successful, but the City’s research has shown that 58% of what ends up in the black bin is organic material that could be diverted.
