Vote Yes TWICE November 3rd!
The Bloomington City Council is proposing major changes that will increase costs, limit choices, and hurt those who wish to make individual trash collection choices for their families. Here's how you can help stop these initiatives which will hurt ordinary Bloomingtonians!
Should the Bloomington City Charter be amended to add: “Unless first approved by a majority of voters in a state general election, the City shall not replace the competitive market in solid waste collection with a system in which solid waste services are provided by government-chosen collectors or in government-designed districts. The adoption of this Charter amendment shall supersede any ordinances, ordinance amendments, or Charter amendments related to solid waste adopted by the City Council in 2015-2016.”?
If City Question 1 above passes, should the Bloomington City Charter also be amended to add: “The council shall not enter into a contract with residential solid waste haulers for the exclusive rights to haul and collect residential solid waste services within the jurisdictional boundaries of the City of Bloomington.” A “yes” vote means you do not approve of continuing City-organized trash, recyclables, yard waste, bulky waste, and electronic waste collection. A “no” vote means you approve of continuing with City-organized trash, recyclables, yard waste, bulky waste, and electronic waste collection.
