Township to revisit single waste hauler
The Saugatuck Township board—which five years ago declined to join neighbor governments signing single waste hauler contracts—plans to revisit the option at its next meeting Wednesday, July 9, at 6 p.m.
“I’m in favor of it,” said trustee Roy McIlwaine at the board’s June 4 session. “It saves citizens money plus the wear and tear, noise and pollution of multiple trucks on roads.”
“It’s amazing the money a single waste hauler contract can save users,” supervisor Bill Wester said. “Almost half. The big problem is it’s the government depriving the public of their right to choose."
