Talking Trash

The Jackson City Council will discuss the garbage contract tomorrow. The scoring is posted below. Notice anything?

Garbage is the least of that group’s problems!

Different verse, same as the first.

As long as the Mayor sets up the "evaluation team", and the "team" members are controlled by his "team" - he can make the results be what he wants.

If the Council wants to dig into this pile of s**t, err/ah, trash, then they would have their own evaluation team evaluate the various proposals.

Last fall - Lumumba's staff controlled the evaluation "team". Again today - they do the same. He can try to hide it behind the various b/s that is written into the proposed order, but just as everything else he does, its nothing but gum-flapping attempting to hide his purpose

And - just as before - his preferred contractor is willing to spend whatever it takes, however they can 'hide' it along the way, to get this lucrative contract.

Question is - will the Council stand up to him again?

Virgie? What say you? We are watching. Was proud of you before to finally break from his coattails - but we want you to stay stuck or else, it didn't count.

The lowest price 1x a week is not listed for consideration at bottom of second page. Can you make it ANY more convoluted?
Why not just list the prices AND names of bidders? Or at least label them 1,2,3?

Keep garbage collection twice a week. No ugly plastic useless 95-gallon can needed.

The numbers are nonsense.

But, the 95 gal cans will hold a body, maybe two.

Quid pro quo said...

Bottom line: whichever company ultimately gets the contract (pre-ordained) will be a huge donor to chowke's next campaign.

Put the Little Napoleon on a polygraph. He knows damn well the identities of those bids. The Council should either table his resolution or bury it in committee. He knows damn well that the overwhelming request heard during his bullshit self-puffery 'townhalls' was to continue twice weekly collections.

The Mayor’s sister stands to make a fortune under his proposal. Watch and see

Any result that does not end in "just give us more money to dole out to our pals as we see fit" will not be tolerated.

In plain sight...........any intervention by the state official would be considered racist. THIS IS the reason said state official sits on his hands and goes for the small fish in the small ponds.

We are picking up garbage. Why should an EBO plan matter? Let's hire the best and the cheapest, regardless of race or gender. Then let's get the trash picked up!

But we can't do that, because it's important that the racial makeup of the contractor match the racial makeup of the city. That's worked extremely well in the water and sewer department, which is why the City of Jackson water and sewer system is the envy of the entire country.

The lowest bid got the lowest score. Bid manipulation at its best.

I'm betting No. 2 (lowest on all options) is Waste Management but only recommended for Option 4. Also, how much does WM get paid to haul the trash from the "transfer station" to their Lake, MS landfill??? This deal is a joke!

Anonymous said...

The EBO is just legalized race discrimination at great cost to taxpayers.

None of it matters because a certain entity already knows they can bid whatever it takes to get the contract then later raise the price due to "unforeseen circumstances beyond their control". The administration will simply go along. So obvious.

Streets lined with huge blue trash containers are like blue pleasure pills for the boy emperor. Don't let practical considerations obstruct his eminence's pleasure.

Practical would be twice weekly, no litter collection, no blue monsters, let people use the containers they already own. And use a collection agency to get money from free-riders.

Council made it quite clear today that if Lumumba brings a once per week collection up for a vote he'll be unanimously rejected.

This charade by the boy-Mayor is nothing but another attempt to get his choice a sweet contract. The city had a perfectly acceptable, reasonable, responsive offer to the previous RFP - but BabyChock wouldn't consider it. Refused to bring it as an option to the Council, where it would have passed easily. Deal would have been done months ago and the city could have spent the past few months focusing on other problems. Assuming, of course, that the city has some other problems that need attention.

But for whatever reason BabyChock refuses to consider doing business with Waste Management. Makes me think that they may be the only potential vendor playing by the rules (that is, not paying off folks for the honor of picking up trash).

No matter what happens over the next few weeks, its a sure thing that WM's response will not be found to be at the top of the list if for no other reason than the 'evaluators' that come from the Mayor's executive office will rate them the lowest.

Damnit! I said...

Should have put together a proposal using the business name of "White Trash" proposed all white garbage cans all white garbage trucks and absolutely crushed the EBO requirements with 100% black employees wearing Good Humor Ice Cream uniforms complete with bow ties.Talk about an opportunity missed!

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.
