Jefferson City trash plan opponents step up discussion

Jefferson City trash plan opponents step up discussion

March 13th, 2011 in News

With just over three weeks until Jefferson City voters decide the fate of the current mandatory trash ordinance, the opponents are stepping up their campaign for changes.

The "Citizens for Action" staged a nearly 21⁄2 -hour meeting Saturday morning to answer residents' questions and to give some city election candidates a chance to comment on the issue as well as their races.

If the majority of city voters say yes on April 5, the supporters said, the ordinance would be changed so Allied Waste no longer would have an exclusive trash collection contract.
