Holstein council imposes embargo on alleys for garbage trucks

The Holstein City Council approved an embargo on city alleys for garbage trucks during its meeting March 5.

Public Works Director Scott Niemeier made the recommendation to require garbage trucks to drive on, where available, hard surfaces only in an effort to preserve the condition of the alleys. Niemeier stated it would be a cost savings to the city. Niemeier spoke with Billy Carnine of Holstein Sanitation, Inc., and they are willing to accommodate this change as long as it becomes a permanent change. A motion was approved to impose an embargo on use of the alleys and only allow garbage trucks to drive on hard surfaces where available.
