CITIZENS COMMENTS/COMPLAINTS:  Shelly from B.A. Disposal asked what she is supposed to do if her trucks break down or they are a day behind for trash removal. She stated that she called Chief Tysinger to let him know once that a truck was broke down and he told her that it was not his responsibility, and to get a hold of the Mayor. She wanted to know what she is allowed to do. Mr. Moore stated that he thinks something else should be done about this and maybe an amendment needs done to the current Ordinance we have in place. Mr. Redfern discussed bidding it out and having one trash company pick up. Mr. Mohler stated that the whole point was so we knew when trash trucks would be in town for accountability purposes. It was decided that this would be discussed in further detail at the workshop meeting on October 28th. Mr. Mohler asked if there was anything else to be brought before Council. Shelly asked what she is supposed to do in order to let someone know if her trucks are broke down. Mr. Mohler stated that she needed to call in to the Village Administration and let someone know. Joanne Boring asked what the time limit was for trash trucks to be picking up. Mr. Mohler replied that it is from 6am to 6pm. Joanne stated that after 6pm, if her trash is not picked up she should pull her trash can back in the garage to make it look better.
