Priceville Town Council approved the introduction of an ordinance pertaining to residential yard waste and bulky waste collection at its regular meeting Aug. 25.

Council members were asked to review the proposed ordinance, be prepared to offer suggestions for changes and be ready to consider its adoption at the next regular meeting.

Mayor pro tem Tommy Perry, presiding in the absence of Mayor Melvin Duran, said the purpose of the measure is to establish guidelines for the curbside collection of grass clippings, tree limbs and other inert matter.
