Columbia City Council approves new trash collection position
The city council approved the addition of a new position for city trash services at Monday's meeting.
The solid waste packer would be an additional staff member on the trash collection team.
The new position is designed to ease the pressure on existing workers and open up opportunities for promotions.
The solid waste packer job will be a full time position and does not require a commercial driver license.
The ordinance amends the fiscal year 2022 Classification and Pay Plan to add the position.
The new position "is not anticipated to have any financial impact on the FY22 Solid Waster Utility budget," according to a council memo.
