RES PH 20-226 10/23/2020 7:02 PMSharon4usa   Watched Debate re OIL/FRAKING ETC BUSURI GAS, What else is Biden-Harris lying about https://twitter.com/i/status/1319466667676749824

Ord 20-32 10/20/2020 2:17 AMWhy 2018-2019 are highest Against Also on page 5 of the council presentation: "* 2021 Rates still lower than 2018/2019 rates." The first year's rates were based on estimated tonnage of 71,000 tons but actual tonnage was around 56,606 tons. Residents overpaid by $1 million in the first year (14,400 tons times net tipping fee of $69). +2
Ord 20-32 10/18/2020 8:35 AMNit Picky (Unhappy) Garbage Customer Against I suppose nobody noticed the (all-too-typical) $2.00 typo/error on Page 5 of the "2021 Rates Presentation To Council 10-21-20 FINAL" -- EOW Quarterly Cart Bill @ $57.23 vs $59.23 +4
Ord 20-32 10/18/2020 3:03 AMSm EOW customer Against The small every-other-week option should be half the price of the small every-week option for collection and disposal costs. The cost allocation is based on a bogus ***umption that each cart regardless of size or frequency of pickup requires a fixed cost to service. If everyone had every-other-week service, then the cost should drop in half because the haulers would need half as many trucks and employees. +5
