Elected leaders are concerned about illegal dumping.
During recent discussions on the old curbside spring clean-up program, they mentioned the increase in both the frequency and volume of illegal dumping within the City of Ripon in recent years.
At Tuesday’s meeting, the Ripon City Council will consider taking that first step towards changing that part of the municipal code.
According to the staff report for the 6 p.m. open session in the Council Chamber, 259 N. Wilma Ave., Ripon does regulate solid waste disposal requirements. However, the chapter doesn’t give a specific definition of “illegal dumping” nor fines to support the enforcement of illegal dumping.
Council members could look to direct staff on considering enforcement options on solid waste disposal and making the necessary amendments such as incorporating language to address illegal dumping.
In other agenda items:
uThey’ll hear staff recommendations to approve the purchase agreement at Industrial Avenue near the Nestles Water Tower for the Multi-Modal Property.
uThey’ll look to accept the donation of decorative lights to be placed on the light poles along Main Street between Wilma Avenue and Nourse Street, and Stockton Avenue between Main Street and Second Street from the Ripon Chamber Foundation.
uThey’re also in line to accept the donation from the Ripon Consolidated Fire District of three external defibrillators to be installed at the Senior Center, library and Community Center.
