Notice of Public Hearing: Amending Chapters 10 and 11 of the City Code Related to Organized Collection of Solid Waste

The Bloomington City Council will hold a public hearing on Monday, October 19, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers at Bloomington Civic Plaza, 1800 West Old Shakopee Road, Bloomington, Minnesota, 55431, or by electronic means as provided by State Law, to consider alternatives for an Ordinance to amend Chapter 10, Chapter 11, and any related provisions of the Bloomington City Code related to organized collection of solid waste. The Ordinance will only go into effect if required as a result of the votes on the ballot questions in the upcoming November 2020 election.
