Maryville Council

This was a concern to large trash haulers, who told Council members at last night's meeting it could price them out of using Maryville's Landfill.

At issue is a continual budget loss for the City to operate the landfill, which City officials were trying to lessen by raising fees in the 3-tierd system it charges people determined by the weight of the trash dumped.

After much discussion a compromise was reached to leave the current rate alone for the highest tier- which would include the largest trash haulers.

Anyone in the lower 2 tiers dumping fewer pounds of trash, however, will see an increase of 2 dollars and 50 cents.

The Council also received sample ordinances for a new law that would ban smoking in all workplaces in Maryville to cut down second hand smoke exposure.

The Council agreed to hold a series of public hearings on the proposal… but will most likely wait until the end of summer to give a substantial portion of the population- the University's students- a chance to come back and give their opinions as well.

Liquor licenses were also approved- with the exception of the Palms, which still must meet safety equipment requirements- and the Pub, which must work with the State Department of Revenue to clear up financial issues. After these are taken care of, liquor licenses will be approved for both businesses.
