Jackson Council Approves Garbage Rate Increase

Jackson Council Approves Garbage Rate Increase

The Jackson City took action on a wide range of subjects at its meeting last night.  The Council approved a garbage rate increase, which will allow ACES waste services to increase its rates by 8% per year for the next three years. The first of the increases go into effect in March and will raise a typical household's rate from $18.39 to $23.17 per month over the next three years.  The Council voted to appoint Rob Klozt to replace Bob Stimpson on the City Planning Commission, following Stimpson's appointment to the City Council in December.   Council-members urged the other candidate, Debbie Collins, to apply for the Planning Commission seat left vacant when Paul Molinelli Jr was appointed to the Amador Water Agency Board of Directors.  The City Council will vote to fill that position at its next meeting.   The Council also discussed how to fill the city clerk position.  Longtime City Clerk, Gisele Wurzburger, no longer resides in the city and is not eligible to run for the job, and no one ran for the position in the November Election.  The Council was considering ways to fill the position, including the appointment of a City Clerk who then appoints Wurzburger as their deputy, so she can continue to staff the City Council meetings. The Council tabled the issue without a vote.
