Garbage service suffering

  • Follow Letters

When you cut the labor of sanitation workers in half, logic would dictate there should be more sanitation workers with less to do – hence, better service! No?

But not in Augusta, because they do two things at once – cut garbage service and give the contract to a new company. My best guess is that the contract went to someone who is somehow connected to someone on the Augusta Commission. Is anyone looking into this?

"My best guess is that the contract went to someone who is somehow connected to someone on the Augusta Commission."

Well we know some of them have a record of accepting perks and contributions (apparently legal bribes), and of approving projects where they will make a killing on selling land to the city when they leave office. I do know one thing....they sure seem to have the knack for voting for the WORST possible deal at the HIGHEST possible price on everything they do. The MINUTE reduction in the Heery contract was a fluke because the Chronicle actually did some digging and the price was so outrageous is actually even embarrassed our big spending commission.....but that don't happen often....or when other "associates" are involved. Somebody is getting something on these deals and it AIN'T THE TAXPAYERS. We get left holding the bag with overpriced contracts, poor service, and higher fees and taxes. But then, that's what Consolidation was all about....consolidating the MONEY of the many into the POCKETS of the few.......ain't that right PS.
