The Grain Valley Board of Aldermen could vote Monday on an ordinance that allows municipalization of trash service.

The ordinance is up for first and second reading on Monday’s agenda.

The ordinance reads: “...authorizing the city administrator to enter into agreements with Envirostar Waste Services and AAA Disposal for residential solid waste removal services.”

Municipalization of the services has been a controversial issue for months.

Residents are split on the issue, according to a citywide survey.

Those in favor like the idea that the plan will save money, which it’s estimated to do, city officials have said.

Those in opposition claim the plan is merely more government. Some have had their certain trash hauler for years and don’t want to give up that familiarity.
