Mayor Justin McKenzie asked Kelly to issue a press release once the cameras are in operation to let the public know the city is trying to be transparent.

City buys new garbage truck

By CHARLIE SMITH,

Columbia aldermen bought a new garbage truck Wednesday, and the city plans to take back over pickup come Oct. 1.

The new truck won’t be delivered until December, so the city is looking at buying a used truck to put into service after its contract with Waste Pro expires Sept. 30. It would need a used truck anyway for a backup.
