            The Council Administrator has discussed the provisions of the City’s Code relative to solid waste collection with the Administration.  There are certain sections of the Code whose provisions are in conflict with each other concerning the volume of bulky waste or trash that is placed out for collection on the second collection day.

            Councilman Winston introduced an ordinance to amend and re-enact Section 10-14 of the Thibodaux City Code of Ordinances (Solid Waste Collection).  The public hearing on this ordinance will be held at the May 18, 2004 City Council meeting.

            Councilman Gene Richard introduced an ordinance accepting the utility extensions from J.B. Levert land Company along North Canal Boulevard and Glenwild Drive.  The public hearing on this ordinance will be held at the May 18, 2004 City Council meeting. 

            The Zoning Administrator has informed the Council Administrator that the Planning and Zoning Commission has recommended that the Council approve the final plat for Tract 3 of the J.B.

            The Council Administrator has discussed the provisions of the City’s Code relative to solid waste collection with the Administration.  There are certain sections of the Code whose provisions are in conflict with each other concerning the volume of bulky waste or trash that is placed out for collection on the second collection day. 

            The Council Administrator has drafted a proposed ordinance that would eliminate the conflict within our Code and any conflicts that may exist with the provisions of the City’s solid waste collection contract. 

            Councilman Winston introduced an ordinance to amend and re-enact Section 10-14 of the Thibodaux City Code of Ordinances (Solid Waste Collection).  The public hearing on this ordinance will be held at the May 18, 2004 City Council meeting.
