BRAWLEY — The City Council here will be hearing more concerns from residents at its Tuesday meeting regarding odor produced by the recently opened Brawley Beef plant.

During public session at the previous council meeting in January, residents appeared before the council and complained about the odor.

Beef plant and city officials have said they are trying to address the smell.

This week's meeting will start at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the City Council chambers, 225 A St.

· the council will take action on three related ordinances that would change water, sewer and solid trash collection rates in the city. Water and solid waste collection rates would be lowered while wastewater rates would be raised, said Brawley Finance Director Fed Selk.

· the council will take action on a request by staff that would reject bids on the renovation and expansion of the Lions Center. The staff also requested the city re-bid the project as soon as possible.
