Topeka approves Borden’s for town trash pickup

The Topeka Town Council approved a three year contract with Borden’s Waste Away after the company submitted the lowest bid.

Three companies submitted bids for the service. Borden’s bid was for $118,171. Republic Service’s bid was $119,007. Noble County Disposal had a bid of $134,192.

The council also approved a “codification” of town ordinances that updated violations and fines as the town looks to handle its own code enforcement.

The council voted to approve of a concept for a parochial school to be built within the town limits. The proposed school will be on CR 700W south of Lake St. The plan will now go to the county for further review, including zoning and site plan.

It was announced that Town Manager Sandra Saggars had resigned, effective Tuesday, December 10. The council was told that Saggars had been hired back at her former employer.

The council will meet on Monday, December 23, at 5 p.m. and plan to open bids for a water main project at that meeting.
