New Albany City Council may abolish collections at intersections


NEW ALBANY — Keep it inside

He has dubbed it a means to improve cleanliness and sanitation, and Phipps will introduce his ordinance Monday that would prohibit appliances and indoor furniture outside of a home.

The fabric inside recliners and couches can become infested and wreak if soaked with rain from being left outside, Phipps said. There’s also fire concerns with placing indoor furniture and refrigerators on porches and decks, and it’s generally an unsightly practice when it comes to the aesthetic appeal of neighborhoods, Phipps said.

The measure will be up for first and second readings on Monday, as the meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the third-floor Assembly Room of the City-County Building.
