Observations and musings on Jacksonville Politics

How to get on the City’s bid list

I notice people keep finding Jacksonville Politics’ website because they are searching the Internet using terms such as “how to get on bid list for landfills” or the like.  You know, that could be funny, if it weren’t so sad.

So, here’s the sad news for these folks:  there will be no bid list to get on for the City of Jacksonville’s Trail Ridge landfill, if the Mayor’s proposed no-bid contract with Waste Management to operate the Trail Ridge Landfill is approved by City Council.  The bill (2008-538) is on the assigned City Council committees’ agendas for hearings the first week of February.

Guess it doesn’t matter whether or not you’re a local company, as long as you’re connected to Paul Harden.

P.S. We’ve posted on this travesty so many times, it’s easier for you to put “Waste Management” in the search box in the upper right hand corner of our page or click on the words “Waste Management” in this post, than it is for us to post all the links.
