Sachse City Council received the city’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), waived permit fees for repairs needed due to the winter storm and extended memberships at the Michael J. Felix Community Center at the Mar. 1 regular meeting.
During the citizen input portion of the meeting, resident Richard Cho asked the council to consider a trash collection credit for residents who went several weeks without their trash being collected by CWD.
Cho said that before the winter storm, the last trash collection in his neighborhood was Feb. 4 and the next collection was Feb. 25 – a three-week gap between collection. Cho said that CWD decided not to pick up trash in his neighborhood on Feb. 11 and Feb. 18 because of inclement weather, and he thinks residents who did not receive the service for that period should not be charged.
Cho contacted the city utility services and was told he needed to send an email regarding credit toward his trash collection. He asked council to consider issuing an automatic credit to all residents whose service was disrupted because many are still dealing with damage caused by the storm. City Manager Gina Nash said she would contact CWD about issuing credits.
