LEON HARMON : Mr . Chairman , there are two citizens signed up. First , Frank Pressly . FRANK PRESSLY : Okay . I ' m addressing Item number 13 . I ' m Frank Pressly , District 2 . I googled Allied Waste and the word indictment. And I got about twenty- five examples of times over the past twenty years that Allied Waste has been indicted for corruption and bribery . Now , my concern here is , we ' re dealing with a company that spanked us twenty years ago. And there was no reason that we had to sell (feedback from mic). What I handed out to you here is, on the first three pages was one of the dozens of articles that I picked out because it ' s kind of close to us here , although it involves a city council . And it shows that they were convicted of bribery and corruption related to Allied Waste . Now what I have attached to that is a copy of a contract , an EDS from Chicago, where Allied Waste is applying for a contract with Chicago . Now , if you notice on page 1 , the name of the entity applying is Allied Waste Transportation Inc.
1 the process of reviewing the Anderson County Code of 2 Ordinances to streamline land development processes . 3 Put that in the form of a motion . 4 CINDY WILSON : Second . 5 TOMMY DUNN : Second Ms . Wilson. Now 6 discussion . I ' d just like to explain that. Some of 7 us have talked about it now for quite some time . Some 8 of our ordinances contradict what the other one says . 9 We just went back to something-- y ' all remember last
to ask one question . The Sheriff cars , wil l -- is this going to be in addition to the others that are there , right? Do we have any that are going that we ' re going to retire? TOMMY DUNN : They are retiring some , yes , ma'am . GRACIE FLOYD : I beg your pardon? TOMMY DUNN: They are retiring some, but
I greatly appreciate my fellow Council members ' rea l hard work on this . And we ' ve had community input . The staff was run ragged during this time . We are very grateful . It goes without saying that trash , garbage , solid waste whatever you want to call it , the sooner it ' s out of sight , it ' s out of mind . But that ' s not so in a lot of areas of our county . This probably represents about a forty - five million dollar contractual agreement going forward for the next fifteen years . So that ' s very important to our county citizens and we welcome working with this company and the community. TOMMY DUNN: Mr . Graham . RAY GRAHAM: Yes , Mr . Chairman. This
GRACIE FLOYD : Oh , so Steve isn ' t here . Okay . This three year contract that the Administrator will do up , who is it for? Will he go -- i s it a blank three year contract that we will give to whomever later on? Is that we ' re saying here now? Not going to make the contract to anybody , we ' re j u st go i ng to say , here is the agreement on the contract . Or here ' s what we want. Now , go ahead and fix us up a contract to use later on . Is that what it is? TOMMY DUNN : It ' s your motion , I ' ll let you go ahead . RAY GRAHAM : Leon , if you , or Mr . Harmon , if you could , please , sir . LEON HARMON : Yes , Ms . Floyd . The agreements we have in place now , is more than a fill - in - the - blank contract . It was basically a one year extension to the previous contract that inc l uded a very extensive specification as to how each provider would operate . And we would have medical control oversight as well in that process . And so , I would anticipate that these contracts would follow a similar arrangement in the future . (Nothing verba l ized - don ' t know who is speaking) Oh , okay . The contracts would be with the entities and where they currently provide services . For example , MedShore here in their zone of operation . Pendleton. That type of thing . GRACIE FLOYD : Okay. But it ' s not like a -- I ' m trying to compare it to something e l se that we do , if we do something else like that . It ' s not like a contract , let ' s say we ' re going to hire a nurse for Anderson County. Okay . It ' s not like we ' re going to write the qualifications and everything e l se we want .
