City Council considering special election on roll carts


The Columbia City Council is set to talk about holding a special election on roll carts at its meeting Monday night.

At its July 20 meeting, the council asked the city law department to draft an ordinance repealing a ban on the use of the carts for trash and recycling pickup.

The move came after the Solid Waste Utility had to pause curbside recycling pickup indefinitely because of staffing shortages.

The city council will discuss holding a special election on Nov. 3 asking voters if the order banning roll carts should be repealed.

The city council meeting is set for 7 p.m. Monday at City Hall.

  1. This is a prime example of the stupidity of today’s political left. A special election??? For garbage cans??? Meanwhile, these bankrupt brains have no hesitation about trampling your constitutional rights concerning important issues of the day, such as the covid hoax, but for this monumental question of wheels on garbage cans, we MUST have a special election! Screw the cost! It’s just that important!

  2. I notice the Solid Waste Utility did not pause the portion of the monthly bill to collect the residential recycling. How typical of government to reduce services and keep charging the same amount to feed their largess.
