The project is estimated to cost $325,000 and is planned to be funded through Solid Waste Enterprise Revenues.

Construction would include excavation, site grading, installing concrete pavement, a perimeter fence, signage, the actual recycle bins and stormwater controls.

The city announced Tuesday, there will be a second meeting on Dec. 7 for the public to provide feedback in the City Hall Council Chambers.

At the meeting, the public will have the opportunity to view preliminary plans, and city staff will be on hand to answer questions.

Anyone who cannot attend either meeting can fill out a comment form and email it to Waste-Mgmt@CoMo.gov.
