July 7, 2021 – 

            Public Hearings 

  1. Second and Final reading of Ordinance O-14-2021 modifying Chapter 66, Solid Waste, of the City Code of Ordinances.  

Current City Code requires franchises for solid waste and construction & demolition haulers to have $1,000,000 in automobile liability coverage, which is onerous on the smaller construction & demolition haulers. One of the City’s new haulers requested City Staff to reduce the amount of automobile liability coverage to $300,000. Staff researched surrounding counties and discovered that Clay and St. Johns County require $300,000 in automobile liability insurance. Staff has presented this item to Council for discussion and direction on June 1, 2021. City Council approved 5-0 to direct staff to draft an ordinance lowering the automobile liability insurance from $1,000,000 to $300,000 and to clean up wording in current ordinance. The first reading of Ordinance O-14-2021 according to the direction given by City Council was passed 5-0 on June 15, 2021. This is the second and final reading of the Ordinance. 

Passed 5-0 by City Council
