REPORT: In response to Commissioner Moss’ comments regarding a situation which occurred in Commission District 9 involving the lack of trash pick up, Assistant County Manager Roger Carlton said the situation Commissioner Moss described involved a private, multi-family unit with more than four units that had been experiencing financial difficulty with its private collector. He noted the Department of Solid Waste intervened and the trash was picked up. Mr. Carlton said if the County Commission desired, the County Administration could be instructed to look at this and similar situations and come back with recommendations. Responding to Commissioner Moss’ inquiry regarding the practical implementation of the foregoing proposed ordinance, County Attorney Greenberg noted the appropriate department would be responsible for implementation of the ordinance. Ms. Olga Espinosa, Acting Assistant Director, Team Metro, noted currently Team Metro had the ability to expeditiously remove abandoned property located within close proximity to schools or parks, and the foregoing proposed ordinance allowed for inclusion of public housing property. Commissioner Edmonson noted the intent of the foregoing proposed ordinance.
