Columbia’s city council will first-read a bill Monday evening that repeals the city’s prohibition on residential roll carts. They’ll also first-read a bill that will place the issue on Columbia’s August 2 ballot.
City clerk Sheela Amin says petition organizer Rachel Proffitt has collected enough signatures to place the issue on the August ballot.
Proffitt needs signatures of registered voters of at least 20 percent of those who voted in the 2019 mayoral election. The clerk says Proffitt needed at least 3,219 signatures and has 3,244 signatures.
August 2nd is already Missouri’s primary election day, so polls in Columbia will already be open.
