Proposed New Trash Rules – Public Hearing

By Susan L. Stern

(Omaha, NE)  —  The City is talking trash, per say. Councilman Chris Jerram is proposing an amendment to city ordinances that mandate how long garbage cans can be kept in front of properties, and require bins be placed at least 20 feet away from a sidewalk.  

If Jerram’s proposal becomes law, rulebreakers who are caught would face a first-offense $100 fine, and $500 for each offense after that.  The amendment was the subject of a Jan 17th public hearing.
