Triad Watch: White Street Landfill:
"City Attorney Rita Danish was researching on Tuesday afternoon
whether at-large Councilman Robbie Perkins and District 3 Councilman Zack Matheny
have a conflict of interest
and should recuse themselves from the vote." Do we have a crisis?

Ed Cone: Trash talk, with comment from Robbie Perkins:
It is very frustrating when the majority of Council
does not want to look at self-performing the work.
If they subtract the city estimate from the for-profit estimate,
then everyone will know how much profit the winner of the deal will reap,
which complicates messaging, among other things.
It has to be cheaper and would allow us much more flexibliity.
And show how what protections should be put in place so it won't get pilfered.
I do not want to re-open the landfill
but if it has to be done, the City forces would be the best option.
Fine, but one way or another,
it is going to come down to police and fire or the White Street Land Fill
Please prove "City forces" is the best option.
How can you make sure it's not a facade, like the GAC?
Then at least we could control the amount of waste going into the landfill
and not overburden the surrounding community.
Agreed on publicly controlling tonnage.
