HAMILTON - The possibility of automating the city’s garbage operation is gaining momentum—a change that would require all Hamilton garbage customers to have a city-issued 96-gallon can.
Hamilton Street Superintendent Mike Johnson and Ingram Equipment Company North Alabama Salesman Will Hovater, whose company is based in Pelham, appeared at the Hamilton City Council’s work session on Wednesday, Sept. 13, to share details on the city’s options for a new garbage truck.
Councilman Gene Sanderson has said he will support a recommendation by Johnson to move forward on the automated truck.
Planning out the city’s Fiscal Year 2020 budget, Johnson has told the council that the city street department will need a new truck in the next year.
