Changes to Trash and Recycling Services
Effective January 1, 2019, Modern Waste Systems, out of Napoleon, MI, will provide service to City residents. Republic Services contract for residential trash and recycling pick up is set to expire at the end of the year. Modern Waste provided the low bid for the services. The City is currently working with the two companies to plan the transition to new service and will provide additional information to residents during the month of November. A press release announcing the change, and a comparison of current charges and the bids received are included below.
You Spoke...We Listened!
Last winter, you provided your thoughts and input about the future of the City through a community survey and meeting. The Planning Commission and City Council have drafted updates to the Master Plan - the document that guides the development of the City - based on what we heard. Now we are ready to listen again. Tell us if you think the Plan addresses your comments and concerns.
Check out the Framing Jonesville's Future section of the website, and let us know what you think about the draft Plan. Comments will be received for the next several weeks. The plan will be adopted after a public hearing after the 1st of the year.
