At its work session on Aug. 22, the Nicholson City Council discussed a contract that would make Waste Pro the “exclusive” garbage collector for the city.
City attorney Jody Campbell advised the council that he is working on a franchise agreement dealing with the terms, fees, etc.
Fred Wood, Waste Pro, and John Cown were in attendance to answer any questions the attorney or the council might have regarding the proposed contract.
Waste Pro currently has 380-400 customers in Nicholson.
“This could possibly double,” Mayor Ronnie Maxwell said.
There is no increase in customer fees planned. The city will receive a five-percent franchise fee from Waste Pro.
Currently, there are other companies that also pick up garbage from customers in Nicholson. That will cease if the contract goes into effect.
Council members Howard Wilbanks and Faye Seagraves both said they were in favor of the contract. Council members Jan Webster and Bobby Crawford were absent from the meeting.
The council will vote on the contract at the council meeting set for 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 12, at the Nicholson Community Center.
