Regulating collection boxes?

The city of Three Rivers is looking into whether it should establish an ordinance to regulate the growing number of collection boxes scattered throughout the city.

Mayor Tom Lowry said he is concerned about the influx of containers, which seek donations ranging from books and shoes, to clothing.

Lowry, who said he is in favor of an outright ban on the boxes, raised the matter in December and it was revisited by the commission earlier this month. City attorney Pat O’Malley is expected to present a draft of an ordinance for review at the commission’s meeting tonight.
