Councilmen and the City Manager agree that complaints regarding brush collection tops the list of citizen complaints. The Crossville City Council, in regular session this week, approved a proposal from the City Manager to address brush collection issues. Previously, Cumberland Waste Disposal, the City’s trash collection contractor, would pick up brush twice a year for each route. Under the proposal approved by Council, brush will be picked up on normal pickup days provided the brush is securely tied in a bundle, and the bundles weigh no more than 35 pounds, be no longer than 4 feet in length and 3 feet in diameter. Pickup would be limited to 2 bundles per week. This is in addition to the twice yearly pick up with the grapple truck.

It will soon be increasingly common for motorists to find gasoline cheaper than three dollars a gallon. That word from Triple-A, which says that gas prices declined dramatically over the past week, thanks to low demand and high domestic oil supplies. The current nationwide average for a gallon of regular is three-18, down nine cents from a week ago. The statewide average in Tennessee is under three dollars a gallon at two-97, down 10 cents from a week ago. The average price in Crossville is two-96 a gallon, down by six cents.
