AGENDA ITEM NO. 1: Public forum to discuss solid waste issues, including once a week pick-up for garbage and once a week pick-up for yard waste, requiring the use of polycarts, describing their placement and setting new charges for trash pick-up services.

City Manager Jim Collard addressed the Commission and audience by discussing the relationship between the City and Allied Waste, formerly B.F.I. Mr. Collard discussed current solid waste costs and overhead and stated that the monthly costs per customers for the City of Shawnee is $10.99, for the manual service now provided, with customers being bill $10.00 per month.
In discussing the proposed automated services, Mr. Collard stated that the costs to the City would be $13.00 per customer although he is recommending a $12.00 monthly charge to customers, with costs gradually increasing each year of the contract and reaching $14.65 the final year of the six-year contract.
Mr. Brent Bolles, General Manager of Allied Wastes, was present to address concerns from the audience and commission. Mr. Bolles also provided a power point presentation showing a neighborhood without polycarts and then the same neighborhood after polycarts had been utilized. A polycart was brought into Commission Chambers and Ms. Kathryn Collum demonstrated rolling the cart to the front of the Chamber.
