                "Shall jurisdiction over the Public Utilities be transferred from the Public Utilities Commission to the City Council?".



PUBLIC NOTICE:  Effective January 1, 2019, the City of Babbitt garbage bills will increase to $50/quarter.  It will no longer be required to use purple garbage bags (any bags may be used).  Bags must be placed in a covered garbage can not to exceed 32 gallons in size.  Garbage will not be picked up if it is not in a can.



The Babbitt City Council is looking for suggestions to name the new recreation/campground area that will be built in the near future - although this is just in the planning stages, we welcome any name suggestions that you may have.  We would like to decide on a name by early April 2018.



As information:  TOPS 566 meets every Thursday at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Babbitt - Weigh In at 8:30 a.m. - Meeting at 9:00 a.m.




Garbage Collection:  Residents are reminded that only CORRUGATED cardboard is allowed in the recycle shed.  Picking up of grass clippings, etc., is an additional service that is provided by the garbage hauler.  Do not overfill bags - they should be easily 'liftable'.  Please DO NOT dispose of animal feces in these bags!  It should be disposed of in the purple "City of Babbitt" garbage bags.  Garbage is collected on Mondays and Thursdays.  Pickup begins at 7:00 a.m.  Please have your garbage out by that time.
