Letter from the desk of the Mayor, I’ve had several people call confused about how they will be effected by the transfer station being closed, so I thought I would address this situation. Short answer is not at all if you don’t have any junk to haul out there at this time. Residential trash pickup will remain the same and will be picked up the same day it always is. I apologize for the inconvenience it causes if you have junk that needs disposed of because we are unable to take that at this time. Fortunately we recently had our fall citywide cleanup and hopefully disposed of most residential junk at that time. You might ask how we got to this point. A couple of years ago my sanitation superintendent advised me that we needed to make improvements to our aging transfer station. I told him to get with our engineers and find a solution that I can bring to the city council. Two years ago we had an engineer come and present a plan to fix the issues. We immediately indicated to the engineer to go ahead and make plans to fix the transfer station. I proposed a budget to the council to pay for the improvements and we passed a budget to fix the transfer station. Since then, the engineer working on the project quit and moved to another firm. We had no way of knowing that the engineering firm that the city has used since the 90s would lose that engineer and the designs to fix the problem would be so long delayed. The city in no way, shape, or form ignored this problem. The project had to be engineered and approved by ADEQ, which is the state EPA. I have been told that all plans have been approved by ADEQ and our engineer will be bidding this project out immediately. I hope this clears up any confusion anyone has and again I am sorry for any inconvenience. In the meantime, we will haul our residential trash to Ozark to be disposed of. Many cities that don’t have a transfer station haul trash to places that do. It’s not uncommon and will not affect your residential trash service. As soon as we know who has the low bid on this project we will know a time frame on how long we will be down at our transfer station. Thank you so much for your patience. Sincerely, Mayor Daniel Rogers

The City of Paris Transfer Station will be CLOSED until further notice. Equipment at the transfer station has malfunctioned and is beyond repair at this time. This closure will be for several months, possibly through next summer.

Regular weekly trash pick up for City of Paris citizens will continue as scheduled.

The water leak has been repaired. Low water pressure will continue until the east water tank refills. There is NO boil order issued with this leak.
