Rizzo currently contracts with Fraser for it’s recycling and trash removal.
Being we all talk about transparency and this is a topic that everyone should be concerned with, I sent a email to all seven of our city council people asking if at ANY time they have met with Rizzo officials.
Attached below is my original email.
As of 1:40 pm EDT on 10-24-2016 Council person Mike Lesich, Yvette Foster and Matt Hemmelberg have responded and their responses are attached below. Every response I receive I will post here for you, the citizens of Fraser so you can be as informed as possible and draw your own conclusions.
If you have ANY questions on this I highly encourage every one of you to contact all of these people in the same manner. Respectfully asking questions is every persons duty and will help the city run better long term.
