Disgruntled contractors have their voice heard at the Board of Works meeting Thursday.
Street Department Head Lennie Conley needs the leaves on the curb to sweep them up and dispose of them properly. He says with the complaints being heard last night it is not as easy of a fix as the contractors would think, it involves changing the rules as they stand now.
Even if the ordinance were to be changed for the contractors Conley says the move still doesn’t make sense for the city as it would put unnecessary amounts of wear and tear on the equipment.
The discussion has been tabled for now but is expected to be picked up again at the next Board of Works meeting.
