At tonight’s City Council Workshop, one of the items for discussion is the City of Gillette’s solid waste policy. City Administrator Carter Napier said that the management of that enterprise has been hit or miss over the years.
“With regard to how we are following the ordinances, and how we are working with our partners both from the private side and you know the large user side, and so we are hoping to offer some recommendations to the council that will streamline that understanding as well as potentially provide some suggestions for ordinance changes.”
Napier said the goal would be a more consistent application of fees but would not amount to a rate increase for anyone.
“We are trying to do that business as efficiently as possible, and in the process of evaluating those efficiencies, we found some inequities in how pricing has been allocated to certain portions of our community. While this wont amount to a rate increase to anybody it certainly will amount to a better allocation of how the service is supposed to be provided. Particularly if one neighborhood is subsidizing another neighborhoods capacities that might be larger.”
