Certain residents of Clinton and vendors who sell on Center Street during the Apple n' Pork Festival my be asked to take on an additional expense starting next year.
Commissioner of Streets for the Clinton City Council, Nan Crang (right), Monday night asked the Council to start considering alternatives for trash receptacles and pick during the weekend. It's her contention the cost of trash for vendors on Center Street should not be incurred by the City.
According to City Administrator Tim Followell, AREA Disposal placed trash receptacles out Friday prior to last year's festivities. By the time Saturday had rolled around, those were full and a special trip was required by AREA to empty them.
Crang is proposing bringing the residents of Center Street together to discuss ways to work together but Followell indicates that was tried once in the past and there was very limited participation.
There was limited discussion from the Council Monday but Crang did hope to have a resolution by the end of the month.
