The Montgomery City Council will be revisiting the issue of whether to allow rideshare company Uber to operate in the city.  It is expected that the issue will be discussed at the council's next meeting on Tuesday.  The council has spoke about Uber in the past, but nothing has come to fruition due to uncertainty around ordinance requirements and ridesharing's effect on local cab companies.  Uber offers users the ability to hail a ride by using an app and a fleet of privately-owned cars driven by amateurs.

Commission Approves Waste Management Plan

Dec 8, 2015

The Montgomery County Commission has approved a ten-year Solid Waste Management Plan with an eye on reducing the amount of garbage sent to the Tallasee landfill.  A Montgomery Advertiser story reports that from 2005 to 2014 the amount of waste collected nearly doubled.  About 12,000 tons of trash was collected for Montgomery County last year and that number is projected to rise to more than 16,000 tons this year.  The plan includes options for the county to offer portable recycling containers along with a central recycling location.  The hope is to eliminate 25 to 50 percent of the waste.
