While considering the financial impact of privatizing garbage collection, the commission should not only consider the impact of not having to periodically purchase new collection trucks but should also include eliminating city salary costs for garbage collection personnel. According to the February 25, 2015 edition of The Cairo Messenger, Councilman James Douglas stated, “…we would not be losing any positions or cutting out people’s jobs”. Eliminating a complete function such as this while still maintaining salary and benefits for all the personnel no longer performing this function would be financially irresponsible. If the decision is made to outsource garbage service, negotiations should include having the contractor hire the existing city garbage collection personnel. Any savings the City recognizes from changing the current garbage collection process should be passed along to the customers.

Jonas Manning worked for me at Cairo Country Club in 1964-5-6 and was the best employee I ever had. I think he was partly responsible for my success on the PGA and Senior Tours as Jonas would handle the shop while I played golf with the members and local pros for a buck or two that really got me ready for the big time. God rest his soul.
