Subject/Title:     Trash dumpsters located city alleyways and paint color coordination. 

Submitted by:    Jon Elam, City Manager 

Approved by:     Jon Elam, City Manager


Provide staff direction on the location of garbage dumpsters located in public alleyways and discuss downtown building paint coordination. 




City staff has recently been involved in the issue of the appropriate location of business garbage dumpsters within public city alleys.  As you look up the alleys located in the downtown area, several business have garbage dumpsters located off their business sites and located in the alleys.  This makes for easy pick-up by City garbage crews, but also exposes the City to a liability if a car hits the dumpsters.  They add an unsightly look to the alleys.  This has particularly been a problem, it appears, when a business garbage dumpster is placed adjacent to a different business than that which the dumpster is used by.   

City policy requires all businesses to develop enclosed garbage facilities, but this has not been enforced downtown.  Staff asks direction with this dilemma.  If the Council wishes to restrict use of garbage dumpsters in the alleys then businesses ought to be provided a window to relocate their dumpsters.

Additionally, staff wants Council’s direction with regards to painting and building color coordination.
