Maysville Changes Garbage Haulers
By Justin Poole
The City of Maysville will switch companies for the town’s trash pickup.
The Maysville City Council discussed staying with R&W Sanitation or changing to WastePro last week. The council voted to move to WastePro. Service will remain the same with pickup Wednesdays. The switch will take place in July.
John Bellamy, owner of WastePro, spoke about the kinds of services that his company could offer to city residents.
“Essentially, what we are going to be doing is somewhat like you have now,” said Bellamy. “We are going to be bringing brand new containers for everybody, and we are adjusting pricing to $12 for the first year ... in addition to basic weekly services, we have established a location, not definitive yet, for a drop-off recycling service.”
After the first year, the cost would increase by a dollar. Any future increases would have to be approved by the council. The recycling services, open to residents who want to participate, could include drop off aluminum, plastic, newspaper and cardboard boxes.
The Maysville council also approved a slate of six residents to serve on the Downtown Development Authority: Mary Hart, Kay Daniel, Catherine Daniels, Charles Floyd, Melody Stancil, and Marilyn Sherry. Lyn Villyard will serve as the city council representative on the DDA.
•approved the placing of three 25 mph speed limit signs on Twin Mill Road and a dead-end sign on Pritchett Road
•discussed a fire hydrant meter rental agreement and the options of requiring a $1,000 deposit, or a legal document requiring damages repaired, or a combination of a smaller deposit and signed agreement.
•discussed the grease trap policy for restaurants and what size tanks should be required to prevent damage to the sewer system.
•Mayor Jerry Baker reminded everyone of the Memorial Day Celebration May 26 in Veteran’s Park at 11 a.m.
•thanked residents, police and fire departments for the respect and participation shown during the funeral procession of Shaun Whitehead, a solider formerly from Maysville.
•Council members Stephan Lewis and Rebecca McNeely brought forward complaints from residents about blocking of railroad crossings and noise issues.
