More than a month ago I posted an agreement between the city of Simi Valley and Waste Management regarding several issues including support for proposed expansions.
Simi Valley city council woman Barbra Williamson has put together, in an unofficial capacity, an oversight committee. The committee has been meeting frequently to discuss ongoing issues and to reach out to the media to cover the story.
The Acorn printed a front page article about the meeting that happened this week. Read it before you comment.
The Star also had an article today by reporter Anna Bakalis. If you have anything the public needs to know I vouch for her interest and integrity. Send her an e-mail. Here is her article.
The focus of the meeting was on an agreement between the city and WM to support future proposed expansions. After looking at the documents and reading the articles this seems pretty startling. But I am still not sure if this is a regular practice with cities, what weight the agreement carries, and what the city's position on it is currently.
The Acorn article did not quote former Mayor Bill Davis, any current council members besides Barbra Williamson, or the city manager. I am looking forward to learning their opinions on this agreement. Is it as bad as it looks, or is it hype?
Leave a comments about the meeting if you were there or about The Acorn article.
