Public Comment and Oral Hearing
Description of proposed adminstrative rules
Over the past few years and at the direction of the Metro Council, Metro's solid waste staff have been working to update Metro's solid waste code and administrative rules to provide greater clarity and predictability for the public and for those directly involved in our region's solid waste system.
In 2019, Metro Council adopted a new Metro Code Chapter 5.03 (Solid Waste Fees at Metro Transfer Stations) to clarify the relationship between the regional system fee and Metro’s own transfer station fees. As part of that code update, sections of code were removed for transfer to administrative rule. Metro provided a preliminary opportunity for the public to reveiw and comment on these administrative rules at that time.
The public comment period is open from Monday, Feb. 24, 2020 through 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 25, 2020.
Metro will accept written comments on the proposed rules until 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 25. Additionally, Metro will host an oral hearing to solicit input on the proposed rules. The oral hearing will take place at the Metro Regional Center on March 12 (Thursday) from 10 am to 10:30 am for the rules addressing Solid Waste Fees at Metro Stations.
Metro’s Chief Operating Officer will consider the comments that Metro receives during the comment period when determining whether to adopt these proposed administrative rules.
