The orginal pickup start dates were March 26 and April 9, for the wards, Public Works Director Bryson Baker said during the Arnold City Council meeting on Thursday, March 15, at .
"A week's notice is not enough," Ward 1 Councilman Doris Borgelt said during the meeting.
"It may only be three days notice," Ward 2 Councilman Jeff Fitter said about most residents would first learn about the pickup dates in the Wednesday or Thursday editions, March 21-22, of the Arnold-Imperial Leader newspaper.
After a short discussion, councilmember and Public Works Director Baker decided on the new shrub pickup dates.
