The Red Bank Commission on Tuesday night completed action on raising its garbage fee from $12 to $16 per month.
Mayor Monty Millard said there is a possibility that Tennessee-American Water Company would continue to put the garbage bill on the water bill "as they said they would, but it is up in the air."
He said those who stop garbage service, then decide they want it back, will face a $25 reconnection fee.
Commissioner Kenneth Welch said the city's garbage billing "is a trial, and it could have a million headaches. I hope it works and I hope that people pay their garbage bill."
Leaf collection will again be offered. The commission approved purchase of a curbside leaf machine for $18,491,
The city rebid a major repaving project and got a slightly lower cost. The low bid of $2.1 million was by Tinsley Asphalt.
Tim Thornbury, director of public works, said that will allow repaving of over 60 side streets - about half of those that need repaving.
Commissioner Ruth Jeno said she witnessed a near tragic wreck at Gadd Road and Dayton Boulevard. She said a family was almost hit because of a visibility problem caused by a city of Chattanooga traffic sign.
She said she tried to get the city of Chattanooga to move the sign, but got no help. She said Mr. Thornbury went to work on the problem and in a few days the sign was moved back and raised.
