Special City Council Meeting Commentary – Part Three

Numbers . . . We don’t need no stinking numbers!!
Net Cost . . . What is that?
Bottom Line . . . Who Cares!

The County has a Hazardous Waste drop off point that is available to City Residents but we (Councilman Gomez, Councilman Castillo, and Mayor ProTem Flores) want our own!! As a result the City of Floresville now has a new Refuse Contractor.

The LOW BIDDER, bid $10.15 for once a weekly trash collection but provided no bid for hazardous waste. Because the three Council Members want the City to have it’s own Hazardous Waste Drop off point they accepted the bid for $14.00 for once a week trash pick up.

Hmmmm . . . .

Based upon the City’s 2,500 residential customers they are going to pay $115,500.00 more per year PLUS the “negotiable” cost of the Hazardous Materials Waste Drop Off Site.

Oh yeah…. Commercial Costs are higher too. The awardee is $15,672 per year higher than the low bid.

Oh…we’re going to save on the costs of removing sludge from the Treatment Plant. Really ? Accepted Bid is $29/Ton . . . Low Bid is $17/Ton.

But the bid awardee is the only one who removes wet sludge. Currently the City does this. Councilman Morones asked the City Staff for the City’s total cost of Wet Sludge removal. No number could be produced. The same question was asked by Citizens and again NO NUMBER could be produced.

So this is BEST VALUE?

$115,500.00/year MORE for residential services
$ 15,672.00/year MORE for commercial services
$ ???/year MORE for a service that is already available (Haz Waste Drop Off Site)
$12 /Ton MORE for dry sludge removal

AND some unknown and unspecified savings for Wet Sludge Removal.

This is savings that Councilman Gomez is going use by the City’s Emergency Garbage Truck.

Get ready. . . you City Services Bill is GOING TO GO UP!!
