Clerk, treasurer posts go to ballot

Nevada City residents will get to vote on Nov. 3 on whether they want the city clerk and city treasurer to be elected rather than appointed after action taken by the City Council on Wednesday night.

The City Council also approved a request by Waste Management to raise garbage rates by 4.1 percent effective July 1.

According to Waste Management, the rate for one 32-gallon trash bin will increase from $12.36 to $12.72 a month, while the rate for a 96-gallon bin will go from $26.12 to $26.74 a month.

In addition to voting to put the city clerk and city treasurer question on the ballot, the council, as expected, approved holding the special election on Nov. 3.

The vote means Nevada City residents also will vote on a candidate to finish the term of Sheila Stein, who resigned earlier this year from the City Council.

Sally Harris, whose City Council term expires in July, will serve as an interim city council member until Stein’s replacement is elected and sworn in after the Nov. 3 election.
