Now that the election is over we can talk real trash as in haulers. The city commission will discuss the putting trash hauling up for bid at their Tuesday, Nov. 13 meeting.
Editor’s note: Tuesday’s city commission meeting will consider a resolution of intent, which would give city manager Daron Hall roughly three months to investigate a trash plan for consideration by the commissioners. In order to do that, plans are to form a committee, which would have regular, open meetings with public comment to help shape that plan. There is no specific plan on the table at Tuesday’s meeting.
Now that the election is over we can talk real trash as in haulers. The city commission will discuss the putting trash hauling up for bid at their Tuesday, Nov. 13 meeting. In the first place this shouldn’t even be discussed at this point due to the fact three commission seats are up for election in April 2013. It doesn’t make any difference how the powers that be spin it local business will be hurt and some will probably be put out of business. Personally I am very happy with my hauler who I have had for over 40 years. If the city takes over your rates will probably be higher than they are now. My thought is we should have the right to pick the trash hauler we want to use and not have some out-of-towner shoved down our throat.
Don’t forget the Nov. 13 city commission meeting and let the commission know how you feel. If you don’t voice your opinion you won’t have a gripe when the city takes over.
