City Council approves new hours for yard site, municipal liquor store

At its Monday meeting, the Glencoe City Council approved hour changes for the yard waste site and Glencoe Wine & Spirits liquor store.
The current hours at the yard waste site are Tuesdays and Thursdays, noon to 8 p.m., and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The site is always staffed during these times.
 The Glencoe Personnel and Legislative Committee felt strongly that it needed to be open more than that and thus recommended to the City Council that the yard waste site be open unstaffed Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; staffed Tuesday and Thursday, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.; staffed Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and staffed Sunday, noon to 4 p.m.
Council Member Allen Robeck spoke in favor of the recommended hours and also mentioned the future possibility of looking into recycling electronics at the site.  
Andrew “Andy” Thurn shared his concern of the site having to be staffed on Sundays. It was mentioned that additional hires might have to be arranged for this time slot. Council Member John Schrupp agreed with Thurn’s concern. Mayor Randy Wilson also expressed his uncertainty about the unstaffed hours: “I am concerned that we are going to have more issues than we’ve had in the past.”
