Natural gas customers served by the City-owned system, who are outside the city, are already paying the additional charge. Councllmen were In accord that it was not fair to provide city service to a few customers outside the city limits, especially garbage service, since this department has a hard time breaking even on revenues received from garbage pickups. City service to non-residents was discussed at the Council's last meeting, after Councilman Don Schulte asked Mayor Carl Becker how many homeowners outside the city limits were being serviced with garbage pickup. Mayor Becker and a majority of the council members were unaware that the City was providing such service. However, Earl Molloway, assistant public works director, verified that some garbage customers did live outside the city, and stated that these customers had been served over a period of many years. The Council then asked Becker to check on the matter and report back to the Council. Mayor Becker told the CouncU this week that seven customers, exclusive of those Included in the recent city annexation, were being serviced with garbage pickup and a number of these were also city water customers. The policy agreed on by (he Council was that garbage service will be provided to city dwellers only. Water and gas customers who reside outside the city will be required to pay double the minimum rate for these services. Councllmen were in accord that this was the most equitable plan, even though they hated to discontinue any service. Kenneth Lett, director of public works, In answer to questions concerning the garbage department, said that men in this department were giving the city good service and they were hard workers. However, he said overtime hours were required to make the scheduled garbage runs. He pointed out that the city would need to purchase a new garbage truck next year, and dig a new garbage pit. City Attorney Wayne Holder said that future garbage disposal requirements would call for land-fill procedures, and this would be even more expensive than the pit disposal. Additional equipment would be necessary to meet this requirement of land-fill disposal, Lott told the Council.
