Columbia’s city council must take action tonight (Monday) on a successful initiative petition to repeal the city’s prohibition on the use of residential roll carts.
Under the city charter, the council can take one of two actions tonight. One is to repeal Columbia’s prohibition on residential roll carts and automated refuse collection vehicles for roll carts. The other option is to submit the issue to Columbia voters in the August 2 election.
Clerk Amin says Ms. Proffitt needed to collect at least 3,219 signatures and has collected 3,244. That’s meets the threshold of at least 20 percent of those who voted in the 2019 mayoral election.
Columbia’s city council meets tonight at 7 at city hall.
