Picking up your garbage is one of Regional Council’s responsibilities. My garbage pick up day is Thursday. As I write this on Saturday, my garbage is still sitting out on the curb uncollected.
While our council has special meetings to discuss the hiring practices of the chief administrative officer, Mr. D’Angelo and talk about all the other internal fighting amongst the councilors, our garbage is sitting on the street.
Regional Council had extended the contract to the waste collector, Emterra, to 2021 in 2016. So we are stuck with these contractors for 3 more years.
Garbage collection is a basic function and our garbage is not being picked up on time. And still we have no resolution.
I watched a public works committee meeting on youtube and councilors spent more time on justifying why they gave an extension to Emterra then fixing the problem. They argued that they made the right decision to extend. Stop covering your asses and do your job!
Why did they not put in mechanisms in the extension to be able to get out of the contract or have a back up when targets are not met?
This is crazy. I ask you – if the current regional councilors can’t get our garbage picked up what can they do?
Seems to me regional council are only good at making more garbage.
Time to clean house at Regional Council. These councilors are not doing the most basic functions.
Vote for me!
