The City of DeKalb Citizens’ Environmental Commission (CEC) will host a public forum
on Thursday, March 1, 2018 at 6:00 PM in the City of DeKalb’s Council Chambers
located at 200 South Fourth Street. The public forum will focus on the City of DeKalb’s
upcoming new contract for residential waste hauling. City staff will attend to discuss
various options and answer questions. Paper copies of the recent residential
questionnaire on preferred refuse services will be available for attendees.
“Residents interested in the cost and future of the City’s refuse collection are
encouraged to attend. “we wanted to provide a public opportunity for the residents to
share their views”, said Dan Kenney, Chair of the CEC.
“This is the first of other public forums we will be hosting to share information with the
public and to have discussions on topics that affect the environment for all of us who
live in DeKalb,” Kenney added. “We invite anyone interested to attend.” The CEC was established to advise the mayor, City Council, and the public on issues related to the environment of the City.
