A policy which has unofficially been in effect was made official on Tuesday night by Decatur City Council: E-waste (electronic devices) will no longer be collected by the city during regular trash collections. And the ban extends to heavy trash pickups.
With the first of two heavy trash collections this year due to come up the first week of April, Mayor John Schultz reminded council of new federal regulations which went into effect on January 1, banning electronic devices from landfills.
Adams County Sheriff Shane Rekeweg says he's making progress in settling financial accounts with Adams Memorial Hospital over medical bills incurred by inmates at the county jail.
Rekeweg told the March meeting of the Adams County Council that the overall hospital bill for inmates was almost $100,000, but has been whittled down to $36,000.
