In its Dec. 14 meeting, the City Council:

- Approved a six-year contract with BFI for solid waste collection, effective March 1, 1994. The new contract will keep prices the same as they are now - $5.97 a month - for three years. BFI will also purchase all of Clearfield's garbage-hauling equipment. Clear-field changed to private garbage collection because it wanted to keep costs down by avoiding purchases of new garbage-hauling equipment.- Authorized termination of its garbage-hauling agreement with Syracuse, effective Jan. 31, 1994. However, Syracuse will still pay Clearfield $1,300 a month for the next five years to pay for its 1,500 trash containers obtained from Clearfield.

- Approved the 1994 contract with Davis County for animal control at a cost of $24,186, $1,150 more than this year's price.

- Held a public hearing and rezoned five acres of property between 128 and 147 Pacific Street from residential to commercial to allow a new equestrian develop-ment.

- Set its final meeting of 1993 for Tuesday, Dec. 28, 7 p.m.

- Honored outgoing Mayor James Layton by presenting him with a clock.

- Approved an amended resolution on the Kayscreek corridor property that includes an additional $620 in back taxes the city inherited after the 22 acres, near Hobbs Reservoir, were donated to the city. The city originally believed only $2,000 in back taxes were due on the land.

- Approved a resolution relating to property purchases on Antelope Drive, between Hill Field Road and Fort Lane, for a road-widening project. The city now plans to widen Antelope between Church Street and Hill Field Road in one construction season in 1994.
