WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The West Lafayette City Council has voted to move forward with plans to expand trash and recycling services.

There are about 1,100 people who receive sewage services outside of city limits. Under the ordinance, they would be included in the trash and recycling routes.

The council tabled the ordinance because of opposition from some home owners associations last month.

The council passed the original ordinance, with Steve Dietrich voting no.

There were talks of amending the ordinance to exclude those neighborhoods in opposition. Ultimately, the council voted for the original proposal.

"I'm just not comfortable completely with it, although I'm very sensitive to the city's needs and the logistics from Mr. Anderson's area, which is why I didn't propose the alternative," said Dietrich.

The ordinance will need a second vote. That will happen at the January meeting.
