More Questions Keep Coming Up About Trash Program

Comments received in our mail point out that Councilman, John Campisi, will be unable to attend both meetings scheduled in South County since they are scheduled on the same date and time. Campisi is the only Council member who has been outspoken against the trash program. Councilman Campisi's district covers south county which includes two separate trash districts. Is this a coincidence . . . or did county officials, who are pressing for the program, plan it that way?

Some calls received were seeking information as to which district they may be located. While County officials have published "maps" of the trash districts, no detail description of the boundaries by exact streets and roads have been published. One such area is the boundary separating District 7 and 8.

Open mouth. Insert foot.

    Failure to directly contact St. Louis County, Dooley's office or your Councilperson, on either Monday or Tuesday, will be a failure to express your opinion.
    If you have doubts about this plan, now is the time to act and respond. Soon it will be too late.

    This item is on the Council agenda for Tuesday, Nov 6th:

    9. 6th District

    Communication directed to Patricia Redington, St.
    Louis County Counselor, from The Honorable John
    Campisi, Councilman for the 6th District, requesting
    that legislation to revise Subchapter V and any other
    parts of the recently (December 2006) passed Waste
    Management Code to provide for a referendum that
    would allow the residents of each St. Louis County
    Trash District to vote on whether they want to opt out
    of the requirements to have St. Louis County select
    their trash hauler or if they want to be included in the
    Trash District and allow St. Louis County to select
    their trash hauler
