In case you haven’t seen it yet, KOB TV has an excellent story on the shenanigans taking place among our city trash collectors:
First, kudos to Mayor Berry for having the guts to do this investigation. However, as we have previously mentioned, the City of Albuquerque could save significant taxpayer resources by contracting out solid waste collection to a private company. Rather than simply doing this, the City should solicit competitive bids from public and private entities and go with the best, lowest-cost option in a process called “competitive sourcing.”
If a private company or government workers operating under a contract were misbehaving, the taxpayers and customers would not be the one paying the bill.
