DEWITT — With the opening of a new business, Bridge Street Social, in downtown DeWitt, its development requirements have led to a discussion of shared trash bin use among three businesses. When buildings in DeWitt change use, like Bridge Street Social changing 107 S. Bridge St. from an office building to a restaurant, they must complete two development requirements: accommodating parking and trash bin disposal, according to Dan Coss, DeWitt city administrator. To meet requirements for adequate trash bin access, Coss met with Fonz Toma, the owner of Terranova’s Market, to discuss the possibility of sharing his trash bin. Toma then suggested the possibility of combining a few of the businesses’ trash bins into one location.
