At that meeting, members will hold a public meeting on a new refuse and recycling collection fee, coinciding with a new one-year contract with Republic Services.  Republic Servicesí bid: 2021, $18.50 per month; 2022 (optional), $19.24 per month; and 2023 (optional), $19.98 per month. With the $2 monthly brush collection fee assessed by town added to Republic Servicesí monthly fee, residents would pay $20.50 per month in the first year ($18 per month currently); $21.24 in the second year, if the contract is renewed; and $21.98, if the contract is renewed again.

In other business, the council will enact this winterís snow parking ban, which prohibits parking in certain Downtown areas between midnight and 8 a.m. during snowfalls of two inches or more.

Interim Police Chief Nick Brown is expected to request next yearís ration of new squad cars; and Clerk-Treasurer Courtney Udvare will present the 2021 holiday schedule to members.
