A new Youngstown-run garbage collection program went well on its first day, city officials say

Unanswered questions, did they get bids from more than 1 company? They have been charging those 21500 city residents $14.75 per month , that is $31,712.50 per month = 3.8 mill a year .... where has the extra money gone if they were only paying 2.3 mil? Now they estimate yearly cost at 2.2 Million, are the residents going to see a decrease in their monthly bill after the bins are paid for?

Youngstown to start its own garbage collection May 1

Interesting to see where this goes, city was paying 2.1mil, ($8.45 month x 21,500)but charging city residents 3.1M, 14.75 x 21.500 per month, now they are $19.75 per month with that extra $5.00 going towards demolition, I don't know how they got away collecting the extra dollars, where did it go?
And they anticipate spending 2.1M, where is the extra 1Mill going?

Oakhill: Much ado, little punishment

"‘This is a palace’

“Garland was a zero. This is a 91‚Ñ2 or 93‚Ñ4,” Tim Komara, a case manager at JFS’ Child Support Enforcement Agency, said when he was asked to compare Garland with Oakhill.

“There’s no comparison. This is a palace. It’s beautiful. It’s clean. We have windows. It’s safe,” and centrally located, said Komara, an executive board member of American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 3577, which represents CSEA workers.

“We have a parking deck. Our cars are safe and out of the elements,” he added.

“There were health and safety issues in that facility — health hazards from mold,” county Commissioner Anthony T. Traficanti said of JFS’ former quarters at Garland Plaza, where the county incurred rent, security, maintenance and utility costs.

“This was the best decision, and I stand by my decision. This is a great project for this community,” Traficanti said of Oakhill.

“Sure you’re going to have repairs,” Traficanti said of the former hospital complex, which was built in stages between 1915 and 1972.

However, Traficanti said, “We own the property. We maintain it. We manage it.” The Oakhill acquisition saved the county the expense of having to immediately relocate the coroner’s office if Oakhill had been abandoned, he added.

County Administrator George J. Tablack estimated relocating the coroner would have cost $2 million.

If JFS had stayed at Garland, its annual occupancy costs today would have been about $1.5 million, but at Oakhill, that number has been $1.2 million over the past year, Tablack said. As Oakhill’s occupancy grows, these costs will be spread across more agencies, he added.

Oakhill: Much ado, little punishment

"Ditzler said a new county office building could have been built for $20 million, but Logue said the county didn’t have the money to build a new building in 2006 and that a new $20 million building wouldn’t have been big enough to meet the county’s needs for JFS alone."
