Dahl Disposal won a 6% raise for picking up Toledo’s city trash. The increase came after a year or so of not asking for higher rates. But trash loads were getting bigger.
CM Richter said the mural on Toledo’s Main Street has been completed. She said the artist will return in June to seal the mural.
For new families moving into new homes, the septic tank effluent pump (STEP) system may supersede a standard septic tank waste disposal system in areas that are getting new homes. It pumps only liquid (water) effluent from the septic tank. It does not pump solids or undissolved paper products. Like a standard septic tank system, the solids collect in the tank and must be removed by a vacuum truck once every 8 years. Power for the pump is supplied by the homeowner. The homeowner also is responsible for the line from the home to the tank. The new rate schedule will be in effect as of July 1, 2022.
