Collinsville City Commission met
Monday, June 11th (at
the City Hall Community Room, 106 N 12th Street) for a 7pm special
session of the Municipal Authority.
Collinsville Municipal Authority (Agenda): =====
1. Call to Order.
3. Roll Call
Chairman Stan Sallee ___
Trustee Trent Rogers (absent)
Trustee Melodie Bateman (absent)
Trustee Pam Porter ___
Trustee James Rigdon ___
4. Discussion and possible
action to re-bid the trash service for the City of Collinsville. -- Motion
to not re-bid was approved.
5. Discussion and possible
action on assuming the responsibility of operations of the trash service for
the City of Collinsville. -- Motion approved for the
City to take over the trash collection service. In the discussion, City Manager
Pam Polk reported she thought the city could do the trash collection and provide
better service than the city had gotten the past three years with the Waste
Connection contract. Commissioner Pam Porter reported the city had collected
the trash for many years before it was contracted out. Mayor Stan Sallee stated
the city was already responsible and handling the trash collection directly
could generate some positive revenue and provide an opportunity to cut costs.
Owasso, Skiatook and Hominy have city managed trash
collection and they all have to use dump locations they do not own. Collinsville
would have a similar remote dump situation.
6. Discussion and possible
action to purchase and/or lease equipment for the operations of the trash
service for the City of Collinsville. -- A motion was
approved to have the City Manager determine the best available options for
trucks, polycarts, dumpsters and dump agreements. Waste connection has made
an offer to the city of $38 each for the polycarts currently in use in the
city. Bill Williams was at the meeting and provided the city information of
other options for polycart purchases.
7. Discussion and possible
action to declare an emergency to wave bids for the purchase and/or lease
of polycarts, dumpsters, and trash trucks for the operations of the trash
service for the City of Collinsville. -- approved
