Calling the Council members about garbage can concern’s will not help.
I say this because the office of the Mayor has instructed council members that all concerns regarding the trash cans be directed to the Mayor’s office. The City Council doesn’t handle day-to-day operations of the City. Council did not put together the proposal for the bidding process. The council was given two companies to compare their bids, and one company only came to the council table for a vote. That company was the one the Mayor decided to give the contract to. City Council wasn’t aware that there was a service for the elderly and disabled residents trash pick-up. The administration didn’t tell them that they could add that. The administration didn’t even consider this when they went out for bid. The City is not offering any service to the disabled and elderly residents are told they will have to pay for a smaller can. City council members hands are tied and there is little to nothing they can do. The word needs to get out to residents to call the office of the Mayor.
Date you called

While council members are listening to what you are saying and would like to help they can’t. They are not I repeat are not (Passing The Buck) I’ve had people telling me that. No, they are not they simply were told to refer all concerns regarding the trash cans to the Mayor’s office. I know many of you out there know what that is to call the Mayor’s office. I will ask you to do so anyway and to please share what you were told who told you and the date here and on Facebook. I know many are furious with what has happened, but unless we can show that calls have been made to the Mayor’s office as requested by that office I’m afraid nothing is going to happen.
Here’s the number (313) 791-3490
