Ottumwa City Council votes to award 10-year contract to Bridge City Sanitation
OTTUMWA, Iowa (KYOU) - After a public hearing and two city council meetings, the city has decided to renew Bridge City Sanitation’s contract for garbage collection.
The council and public lobbed critique at both - Bridge City for 10 years of complaints among citizens, and Sparta Waste Services for being an out-of-town business.
In the end, the council voted 3-2 in favor of Bridge City Sanitation.
The contract will last until 20-31 and will cost the city just above $19 million.
However, to balance the criticism against Bridge City Sanitation, the council may decide to evaluate the company and contract every few years moving forward.
