Garbage rate hike goes to Grass Valley Tuesday

Garbage pick-up service is set for another increase in Grass Valley, where Waste Management is asking for a 3-percent rate hike.

Residents can speak about the proposed increase during a public hearing set for Tuesday; the Grass Valley City Council meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 125 E. Main St., downtown.

Council members also will take public comment about a proposal to ban time and temperature signs, and could vote to approve the ban.

In other matters, council members will:

• Look at midyear budget adjustments

• Consider spending $7,500 to develop an application for Grass Valley that can be used on iPhones

• Consider a study on redevelopment and infill in Glenbrook Basin, which the city has annexed in the past decade

• Approve a new pay schedule for some employees (part of the consent agenda, which is the approval of routine matters)

• Approve replacement of some sewer lines, costing about $190,000, and send the project out for bids (consent agenda)

• Approve shifting money from other city funds to help pay for construction of a long-desired interchange on Highway 20/49 at Dorsey Drive; and ask for bids for construction inspection services (consent agenda)
