GETTING DOWN TO GRASS: Town remains undecided on yard waste

SOUTH WHITLEY — Debris and refuse from yards in South Whitley have created much controversy within the town.Decisions over how to properly dispose of grass clippings have left town council members scratching their heads. According to South Whitley Town Council President Tony Starkey, pink cards have been left at homes in recent weeks notifying the resident that if grass clippings were not picked up by the town, it was because the yard waste wasn’t bagged.“This is really frustrating,” said Councilman Steve Smith. “I thought at the last meeting we decided to not make any changes until we knew for sure what we are going to do.”Town Manager Dave Wilkinson was not aware of the notifications and agreed with council members that for now, the town would continue to handle yard waste as it has done in the past.To read the rest of this story, see the June 12 issue of The Post and Mail.
