* “I don’t know what Tm going to do," Minikin said. “We'll see in 30 days."
The council also set Feb. 18 as the date it will meet in a budget work session to balance the city’s budget Among items set to be discussed are the city’s ordinance that designates an official city depository bank which has
expired, the maintenance of sufficient security funds and the format used for maintaining the city’s books.
Minikin also told the meeting that the city’s recycling program had saved 34 tons of recyclable items from going into the landfills in the city’s drop-off program. I
Minikin said the vans that come and pick up the materials are not IOO percent
reliable because the economic benefits of recycling are not favorable.
“There just isn’t a whole lot of money to be made in recycling these days," Mil-likin said.'
Citizens voiced their interest in a curbside recycling program and Minikin told them that a program such as that could be possible, but that the low marketability of recyclables coupled with a
small fee that would need to be tacked on to residents’ garbage collection bills may stall future implementation.
