Councilman Flurry: Shreveport Sanitation Needs More Money [VIDEO]
Shreveport City Councilman James Flurry talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about recent troubles in the city's garbage pick up and possible solutions, including the possibility of a monthly fee.
Flurry tells KEEL listeners that he is glad to see that the new Perkins administration is consideration a number of possible solution, but that he (Flurry) is against the implementation of a monthly charge, saying it would place a financial burden on a number of his constituents.
From KEEL News:
"To help stabilize garbage pick up, mayor Adrian Perkins is considering a monthly sanitation fee. unlike most cities, Shreveport has never charged a fee for trash services and consider pick up a part of basic city service. councilman James Flurry agrees that something with the sanitation department needs to change but isn't sure a fee on residents is the answer. the proposed fee could come up during Friday's city council work session, but flurry says the earliest it could be voted on is February."
