Interested persons will take note that the Village Council of Yellow Springs on Monday, Sept. 21, 2015, gave first reading to an ordinance, text to follow.

Council will consider said ordinance for a second reading and a public hearing to begin at 7:00 p.m., Monday, Oct. 5, 2015, in the Bryan Community Center, 100 Dayton St.

Whereas, the Village has a contract with Rumpke Waste, Inc. for solid waste rates and yard waste collection; and

Whereas, the Rumpke contract has increased the cost for garbage stickers and lawn bags; and

Whereas, current charges set forth by the Codified Ordinances will fail to meet the financial obligations of these increased charges by Rumpke and the cost associated with providing said service; and
