As storm clean-up gets rolling, several businesses find themselves barred from using the Columbus city landfill.
The city has banned 15 companies, because they haven't paid landfill fees. The combined total they owe is more than 88-thousand dollars. On Friday, two businesses paid the city and have been removed from the list.
The businesses range from construction companies to tree services.
City of Columbus News Release:
Effective immediately...the following businesses are not permitted to use the landfills due to non-payment, not even on a cash basis. As these businesses attempt to use the landfill, staff will inform them that they must contact the Revenue Division Office, Allen Young or myself to make payment arrangements before they will be permitted to use the landfills in the future. As these businesses clear up their accounts, the Revenue Office will provide notification once the account is clear so access to the landfill is granted.
