In a 4-1 vote, the Wadena City Council denied a refuse collection license to Nick Davis of City Sanitary Service based out of Park Rapids.


The motion by council member Toby Pierce was supported by Mayor Wayne Wolden and council members Jeanette Baymler and Kay Browne, with council member Don Niles voting no.

Pierce cited a lack of complaint about the two existing garbage haulers and concern that the local market would not support three haulers.
