The clerk presented City Code 8.04.70. This code states:
No person shall engage in the business of collecting, transporting, processing or disposing of solid waste for the city without first entering into a contract with the city. This section does not prohibit an owner from transporting solid waste accumulating upon premises owned, occupied or used by such owner, provided such refuse is disposed of properly in an approved sanitary disposal project. Furthermore a contract is not required for the removal, hauling, or disposal of earth and rock material from grading or excavation activities, provided that all such materials are conveyed in tight vehicles, trucks or receptacles so constructed and maintained that none of the material being transported is spilled upon any public right-of-way.
The clerk was instructed to contact Midwest Sanitation to discuss options, and to notify the business owner that she, herself as a property owner could transport the construction debris to the Mahaska County Landfill.
Meeting was adjourned.
