County Council Meeting Raises More Questions Than Answered

The September 21 meeting of the St. Louis County Council raised more questions about the county’s trash collection program. The attorney representing Veolia started by saying he was there to answer any questions the council members may have. It was almost embarrassing that he could not – or would not – answer all. In fact, he answered only about half. For many, he just plain didn’t know the answer. Veolia would be best served by sending a person with answers.

It also appears that Veolia and Allied Waste Management have gone ahead with major decisions regarding their merger plans. It appears they are placing St. Louis County in a box. Their merger plans include the purchase of equipment, hiring manpower, etc. If the County does not approve their merger, both companies may be in a bit of trouble.

The Council put off a decision to their September 28 meeting – maybe. If you’re a tax paying resident of St. Louis County, it would be worth your while to get a glimpse how your county government works or does not work. The Council meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, September 28 at 6:00 p.m. at the County Government offices, 41 S. Central in Clayton, MO.

    The contracts allow for the transfer, and they will be transfered. No big deal.
