Where Does the Navy Stand on Managed Competition at Miramar Landfill
During a city-council meeting on September 26, city staff will present the preliminary statement of work required to implement managed competition at the City's Miramar Landfill. The statement of work is the first step in finding private companies to conduct operations.
And while the City is moving forward with the process, acknowledgement from the Navy and Marine Corps, who lease the land to the City, cannot be found.
On May 18, members of the Rules Committee asked that staff provide proof that the Navy and Marine Corps are onboard with the plan to privatize daily services at the landfill.
"The City sent a letter to the Navy and Marine Corps on May 26, 2011," reads a June 14 memo. However, no indication was provided as to whether the City received the thumbs up from the landowners. And, no written response from the Navy or Marine Corps was found in Monday's staff report.
In a September 22 email from the Navy's public affairs office, spokesperson Brian O'Rourke responded: "The Navy leases the Miramar Landfill site to the City; it would be inappropriate for us to comment on the City's proposal."
The item is first on the agenda for the 2pm meeting.
