Title
Repealing Section 33.23 of the Madison General Ordinances to eliminate the Solid Waste Advisory Committee.
Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This ordinance would eliminate the Solid Waste Advisory Committee. The Committee is currently tasked with limited duties, including making studies and recommendations related to solid waste and recycling issues, and reviewing City programs and operations on these issues. However, the Committee has frequently found itself with few referrals or actionable items for consideration. Matters that would otherwise be referred to this committee may instead be referred to other committees or even ad hoc committees depending on the issues involved.
