Crestview council weighs garbage collectors' contract proposals

The city would also realize more than $10,000 in franchise fees under Waste Pro's proposal than it currently receives, for $150,670 total, Roy said.

The evaluation committee members unanimously praised Waste Pro's performance during the five years it has held the city's garbage contract.

"In the past five years with Waste Pro, I have only received 17 documented complaints from citizens about their trash service," Steele wrote. "Before, we were averaging five per day."

The ultimate decision rests with the council, which in the past has sometimes ignored the recommendation of advisory panels.

Comparing bids
