Garbage Problems Continue and Citizens
Need to be heard
People in both
the County and the City continue to have problems with the garbage
service ďprovidedĒ by Advanced Disposal.
We have heard from many people and have seen the county logs on
complaints they receive about garbage. Garbage isnít picked up on a
timely basis; garbage isnít picked up at all; people call and hold
on for more than 10 minutes (many times over 20 minutes) and then
get promises that are never kept; people leave messages and never
get a return call. After reading the August City Council minutes,
it was noted that City residents are also having trouble. We talked
with Mr. King and he said his phone rang off the hook about it, but
he didnít keep a log. (That was September 6.) This week in the
Monticello News, Ms. Billerman is quoted as saying they do keep a
log and you can get credit for missed pick-ups!
If you live in the City, donít hesitate to call and report your
garbage problems so you can get your $3.00 per week credit if your
garbage isnít picked up.
Disposal contract is on the BOC meeting agenda this coming
Monday night, September 19, at 6:00pm. If you have
had problems, PLEASE come to the meeting and let the commissioners
hear about it first hand! The public is allowed to speak
before the meetingómake sure you sign in to speak. Something
needs to be done about this company. They have broken the
contract with the county by not providing the service that we are
paying for. We need a new provider.
