The bill that would give Waste Management $750 million dollars to run Trail Ridge Landfill through a no-bid contract was once again deferred in Council Committees this week – even after the Mayor sent unsolicited letters to people defending his decision to award the contract without a bid.
The next Committee meetings are scheduled for the week of February 17th (Monday the 16th is a holiday).
BTW, I can’t tell you how many people I heard say that they were either irritated or offended that the Mayor would send them an unsolicited E-mail about the no-bid contract. Evidently, Mayoral staff culled the E-mail addresses from the Mayor’s normal E-mailing list, plus E-mail addresses from CPACs and E-mail addresses from people calling to complain about City services. The people who had not given him permission to use their E-mail address for his unsolicited letter were not amused.
