City Council Passes Ordinance Aimed At Dealing With Illegal Tire Dumping

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

The City Council on Tuesday passed on first reading an ordinance designed to deal with the continuing issue of illegal tire dumping.

Under the ordinance, there will be permits for tire dealers and tire haulers. The haulers must display stickers showing they are approved by the city to properly dispose of tires.

Tire dealers will be required to keep "manifests" providing information about tire disposals.

A hauler will have to sign a document upon picking up tires and another upon dropping them off at the landfill or a recycling facility.

Those who violate the ordinance will face a possible fine of $50 per tire per day.

Tires that are not for sale do not have to be under cover. However, tires not for sale must be covered.

The city attorney's office said the ordinance does not overlap state laws dealing with handling of tires and cause an undue burden on tire store operators.

Voting Lines Are Too Long - And Response

I’ve tried three times this week to vote at the Collegedale early voting place. Each time I’ve been there, the line was not only around the building, but it stretched at least another block (or two) into the adjacent parking lot. I realize that it is easy for someone like me to criticize the ones running the election, but I feel criticism is deserved in this case. If they cared ... (click for more)

I tend to believe many who voted ‘no’ would actually support ... (click for more)
