June 22nd is one of the last chances to speak out on the proposed outsourcing of San Diego's only public landfill. Will you be there? Join a broad coalition of community, civic and environmental groups at the Rules Committee hearing on the landfill outsourcing.
Last month, in response to public concerns, the City Council Rules Committee voted to have the mayor's staff address a number of concerns about safety, environmental and financial issues before the outsourcing moves forward.
Join us at the next Rules committee hearing to ensure that these questions were answered:
When: 9am, Wednesday, June 22
Where: Rules Committee, 12th floor
San Diego City Hall, 202 C St.
The outsourcing of the Miramar Landfill through the managed competition process poses serious issues and concerns for San Diegans including:
- What are the environmental safeguards required of a private operator?
- How will greenery services including free or reduced cost compost and mulch for city residents be affected?
- Will service quality levels be maintained?
- How much is the outsourcing process costing taxpayers? The city just wasted $500,000 on consultants in a failed effort to sell off Miramar Landfill.
- How will strong contract oversight be ensured? The city has a history of contract mis-management. Recent examples include contracts for ambulance service, computer and IT systems, and fire debris removal.
