Leduc County expands curbside pickup consultation process

More time allotted for public consultation on solid waste curbside pick-up.

The window of opportunity for public consultation regarding solid waste curbside pickup in Leduc County’s East Vistas (Diamond Estates and Royal Oaks) has been extended to February after councillors became concerned administration would have to rush the job to meet the previous January deadline.

The public consultation process is to ensure support for curbside pickup is in place before expanding to door-to-door pickup.

Director of public works and engineering Des Mryglod says the majority of the public consultation can be done online.

However, council was concerned with people travelling away over the holidays they may not have an opportunity to voice their opinions.

“Is this doable, are you pushing to hard to get this done?” Coun. Tanni Doblanko asked Mryglod during council’s Dec. 22 meeting.

“Let’s not got down the same road other governments go with no consultation,” said Coun. Clay Stumph. He says he would rather administration come back to council in February rather than January.

Administration was directed to go ahead with public consultation and report back to council on Feb. 8.

Council was also considering including Lucas Estates in the public consultation process but ultimately decided to hold off.
