Brushy Meadows Recycling Program Moving forward with our pilot project in Brushy Meadows for recycling. We have distributed the containers and put out information to all of the residents. We are already getting some feedback from residents. We will start collecting next week. We will do an every other week collection for six (6) month period. We look forward to receiving that input. Councilmember Albert is helping us tremendously getting word out in that community. We will look for ways to improve that, we will continue to monitor and adjust as we work though the pilot project. If it is a success going forward we will expand it as we go into 2019 and then ultimately Council will make the decision whether or not it is a program that we would desire to use citywide or expand it into other neighborhoods as we move forward. Please share feedback you receive with us. Downtown Construction Update:

Basically for any project that we have the opportunity to look at there are opportunities for us to look at ways to reduce the overall development burden without negatively impacting the revenue streams and the benefits that come to the community. Discussion held.
