At its November 24 Meeting of the Whole, Columbia Borough Council unanimously approved waiving the dumpster permit fee and parking fees for Columbia Economic Development Corporation (CEDC) to remove unwanted materials from Hotel Locust and Hotel Columbia. During discussion preceding the vote, Council said CEDC wanted to place a dumpster at the location on the 300 block of Locust Street for approximately a week. However, two large dumpsters appeared today, the first day of the operation. As promised, items were being removed and thrown into the dumpsters, which currently block three metered parking spaces and part of a loading zone. As can be seen in the last photograph on this post, ample space is available in the rear of the property, but various logistical concerns make access less convenient.
