City Council passes residential trash policy, curfew on CenterPeace
The Salem City Council met for their monthly public meeting on the evening of Monday, May 13, 2013. Their first order of business was attending to a leftover matter from previous meetings. In April, the Council discussed at length Ordinance 1454, new legislation that would forbid residents from leaving their trash on the curb more than 24 hours before their scheduled trash pick-up.
A vote was postponed to May after the Council decided that more time was needed to figure out which of the City’s departments should oversee trash pick-up violations.
