In a tense discussion after hearing from speakers on the waste collection contract, the Leon County Commission voted to continue the County’s relationship with WastePro.
The vote was 4-3.
Leon County Commission Chairman Bryan Desloge, with Commissioners Minor, Maddox, and Jackson supported keeping WastePro, despite past customer service issues.
Desloge said he did not want to pass on a $4 a month price increase to customers and was concerned about challenges in transitioning to a new vendor.
Commissioners Lindley, Dozier, and Proctor voted in support of a new vendor. The Commissioners argued the price increase would come with better customer service.
