DUBOIS – On Monday night, contracts for Type “A” limestone 2-A and Type 2 anti-skid aggregate material were awarded to Bucktail Excavators Inc. by DuBois City Council. The amounts per ton were $14.77 and $18.92 each.
Also, council held the first readings of Council Bills 1914 and 1915. Council Bill 1914 is an ordinance written to dictate and govern wireless communications towers should any be constructed within DuBois City.
Council bill 1915 is an ordinance written to dictate the requirements for grease traps within the city. It was noted that the purpose of Council Bill 1915 is to limit restaurants’ grease from entering the sewage system and causing problems as a result.
“We are having a lot of infiltration into the sewage system that we need to put an end to,” said City Solicitor Toni Cherry. She added that most new restaurants already have grease traps installed.
In other business, the fall clean-up was announced for Advanced Disposal’s residential customers within DuBois City. It will be the regularly scheduled pick-up day on the week of Oct. 3. The following stipulations were given:
- There shouldn’t be any items that require more than one person to lift.
- Any loose items must be bundled together.
- There shouldn’t be any tires, Freon, televisions, electronics or yard waste.
DuBois City is also changing the hours for its public dumpster for the wintertime.
Open the first Wednesdays of the month, it will be available at the city garage from 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. It will accept electronic devices; however, it will not accept anything with Freon, according to council.
