Starting Wednesday, residents will start receiving a survey from the city, along with their utility bill. It's a survey looking to gage the public's interest in a city-run trash collection.
Residents will be able to tell the city whether or not they're interested, how much they currently pay for trash collection, and whether or not they believe a recycling program would be a good idea.
Mayor Dennis Spinner says USI will collect and analyze the data for the city common council. Residents here do believe a city-run collection is a good idea.
"It's nice just to be able to put it out by the curb, instead of having to go to a city collection site, or have somebody, a third-party come in and pick it up for you, maybe. You know? So... I don't care what it would cost. I'd do it," says Kurt Neighbors, a Huntingburg resident.
The City of Huntingburg will review the results of the survey this spring. At that time, the common council will decide whether or not to proceed with the new trash collection.
