Agreement reached. Garbage collection to resume in days

Update 3:15 pm Garbage agreement reached

Richard’s Disposal will get a 12-month temporary contract in a compromise reached Monday afternoon between the City Council and Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba, according to a city official.

The City Council will meet at 2:30 pm Tuesday to approve the deal. It is unclear whether everyone who has been opposed to Richard’s would vote yes tomorrow since the agreement was reached within the judge’s chambers, but the official did say that Richard’s is prepared to resume trash pickup as soon as the contract is approved, so it could start as soon as tomorrow.

Recess until 9 am Tuesday

Update 10:40 am: Judge recesses hearing on garbage dispute until 9 am Tuesday.
