Agenda Analysis

Analysis

 

On June 1, 2021, the Council approved Ordinance No. BL2021-693, as substituted, which established a Special Solid Waste and Recycling Commission to explore solutions to Metro’s short term and long term solid waste disposal needs. The original ordinance lists two staff members of the Solid Waste Division of Metro Public Works or Metro Water Services as members of the Commission. The ordinance under consideration revises the role of the staff members to be advisory, non-member participants instead of members of the board.
