Three Hills Notices - June 12, 2019

At the May 27, 2019 Regular Meeting, Council made motion to continue “front curb collection indefinitely”. The decision to maintain front curb collection was made to:
• Reduce damage caused to the back alleys by the garbage truck. Potholes and ruts form from the weight of the truck during wet conditions.
• Eliminate the associated safety concerns for our staff and residents. Low-lying power and communication lines, as well as trees and narrow spaces create potential hazards.
