FLORESVILLE -- The city council here has voted to seek requests for qualifications from companies interested in providing trash services. Mayor Daniel Tejada presided as councilmen Jesse Christopher Flores, Johnnie R. Gomez, John W. Guerrero, and Sherry Martinez Castillo made the unanimous decision at their March 8 meeting.

According to the city’s current five-year contract with IESI, which the council approved Sept. 27, 2007, either party must provide written notice of the intent to terminate the contract by April 2. If this does not occur, the city would have to negotiate with IESI because “the agreement will be extended for successive periods” of five years.

“While it’s a bilateral relationship, your leverage is just not there,” said City Attorney Louis Rosenberg.

Gomez believes that the city could best be served by re-establishing its own solid waste program, in which the city would be responsible for equipment and personnel. He also has said the city could establish its own trash business by involving other nearby municipalities.

Constituent Liaison Sherry Pollok said the option for the city to create its own service also could be written into the request for qualifications.

The city’s strained relationship with IESI began after the former sanitation provider, Waste Management, informed the city in early 2007 of its intention not to renew its contract. The matter was placed into the hands of then-City Manager Juan Cedillo, who revealed to the council that only IESI submitted a bid. Caught between the end of the fiscal year and having no garbage-collection services, the council voted unanimously to enter into a contract that meant a $50,000 increase in sanitation costs in the first year alone. It also meant that the longstanding twice-weekly residential trash services were curtailed to one pickup per week.

Also during its March 8 meeting, the council:

•Approved closure of the westbound side of C Street, between Third and Fourth streets, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 5, for the Floresville Chamber of Commerce Market Day.

•Approved a resolution in honor of the April 28 Rosenberg and Rotter Cowboy Breakfast to benefit the Wilson Area Housing Foundation.

•Tabled its discussion of a tower lease agreement for Practical PC to lease space on the B Street water tower.

•Voted to amend its annexation of the recreation corridor on S.H. 97 to include an additional 500 feet of highway right of way between the San Antonio River bridge and the Rancho de las Cabras historical marker.

•Honored public works employee Larry Smith as the February employee of the month.
