Garbage Contract

Posted by drewbendon on October 30, 2007

The proposals from the three garbage firms vying for your dollars will be presented at the next City Council meeting this coming Monday, November 5, 2007.  The Council will be discussing the different criteria to be used to select the firm we go with – cost, recyclable programs offered, other options and may even decide on the firm that night.  This is  a 10-year contract, so speak now or forever (at least in the minds of my kids) hold your peace.  My vote would go to whichever firm’s proposal encourages/makes it easy for folks to recycle and compost more and produce less garbage.  Thanks to the heads-up from council-member Keating on this issue.

The Mulberry’s Market website construction updates now says this:  Our latest news is the new tin ceiling and the beautiful stained concrete flooring. We’re also receiving all the equipment and refrigeration on Halloween and the painting and tiling has begun! We have begun hiring our first employees, and our goal of opening by Thanksgiving of 2007 is seeming more and more real.
