City adds green bin pickup Wednesday


HURON — In a brief Huron City Commission meeting Monday evening, Commissioner Rich Bragg arguably had the most important announcement for city residents, and he announced during public forum that the Solid Waste department would be doing an additional pickup of green bin yard waste on Wed., Nov. 8.

Last week, the department had announced that daily yard waste pickup would be done for the year at the end of the week and announced a citywide pickup scheduled for Wed., Nov. 15, as part of last week’s announcement.

“Like always, this depends on the weather,” Bragg stated as he read the announcement. He also reminded the public that, weather permitting, Solid Waste has scheduled a yard waste pick up for Wed., Nov. 29 as well.

The commission approved the audit report on the 2022 city financials done by ELO. The auditors explained the difference between government entities and private entities in reporting for audit, but otherwise reported no major findings.

Commissioners also:
• Approved a temporary job classification change for Julie Pomerico from Administrative Assistant to Interim Planning Director.
• Accepted the resignation of 911 Telecommunicator Jennifer Gibson, effective Nov. 17.
• Approved the transfer of a retail on-sale liquor license for Knights of Columbus of Huron.

• Approved a lease agreement with Ben Dragt for use of the Broadland Creek Golf Course clubhouse.

The commission adjourned the public meeting to convene in executive session on personnel and contractual matters.
