Garbage Collection Communication

August 13, 2018

Open letter to the citizens of Annapolis County.

Dear Residents

The Municipality of the County of Annapolis, its Warden, and its council, would like to thank you for your patience in the current situation with garbage collection.  We particularly thank everyone who has contacted us to learn more about what has taken place.  Your questions are always welcome.

We understand and appreciate the concerns citizens have over the future of garbage collection and disposal in Annapolis County.

It is regrettable that our county has been placed in this situation, but we have taken proper measures to ensure garbage collection continues as usual.

We are also reviewing the circumstances that have led to the garbage collection dispute to protect our residents from similar disruptions in future.

The discussion on this matter is sensitive.  It relates to contract obligations that have been ignored, permitting contracts to be implemented without the opportunity for municipalities, including Annapolis County, to properly review or vote on those contracts. 

On behalf of the Municipality of the County of Annapolis Council,

Timothy Habinski

Warden for the Municipality of the County of Annapolis

August 1, 2018

Garbage Collection

The Municipality of the County of Annapolis’ residential garbage collection will continue as usual.

Decisions on contracts and budgets must be properly communicated and approved according to law. 


This responsibility is one the Municipality takes very seriously. It is a matter of public interest that public corporate bodies such as Valley Waste adhere to this standard. 


Services are important and must continue but through proper corporate decision-making when taxpayer's money is involved. 

This accountability is a foundation of Canadian democracy.

On July 26, 2018 the Municipality of the County of Annapolis received correspondence from Valley Region Solid Waste-Resource Management Authority.

The Municipality of the County of Annapolis (the County) has referred the matter to the RCMP in respect to correspondence the County received from Valley Region Solid Waste-Resource Management Authority (Valley Waste). The County will not be providing any further comment at this time.

Sincerely,

The Municipality of the County of Annapolis

August 2, 2018

Garbage collection

Valley Waste is aware a cheque was sent and received from The Municipality of the County of Annapolis to pay for garbage collection and disposal; comments that have been made in social media are not accurate. 

Any information provided about Annapolis County services that has not been approved by Annapolis County should be viewed as unreliable information.

It is a matter of public interest; Annapolis County assures garbage collection will continue as usual.

Sincerely,

The Municipality of the county of Annapolis

August 3, 2018

Garbage Collection Update.

Valley Waste is not a typical private company.  It is a municipal enterprise created by municipalities and its budget must be approved as described in the municipal agreement that created Valley Waste.  Valley Waste does not have approved budget, yet they are telling citizens the County of Annapolis owes them $700,000.00.  Valley Waste’s actions may force Annapolis County to increase taxes or cut services on its citizens, yet Valley Waste does not have the approved budget it would need to issue a bill. Annapolis County will not legitimize actions taken without authority.
 

The truth will come out.

Annapolis County has a significant investment in Valley Waste – approximately 21 percent.

Valley Waste does not provide garbage collection directly.  They contract out the service to private companies.  Those private companies who have approved contracts have the County of Annapolis’ full support.

Garbage collection will continue as usual

Sincerely,

The Municipality of the county of Annapolis

Garbage Collection Update.

The two documents verify the invoice from Valley Waste and the Cheque sent to Valley Waste (in trust).

Sincerely,

The Municipality of the County of Annapolis

Garbage Collection

 

Your tax money has not been spent or lost in respect to garbage collection.  All monies are duly accounted for. 

The issue is Valley Waste does not have an approved budget, they are operating without an approved budget. 

Municipalities are not permitted to give money to a contract that does not have an approved budget.  The County of Annapolis is following this requirement. 

The County of Annapolis offered a Budget to Valley Waste and conditionally gave Valley Waste a cheque for services “in trust” subject to an approved budget.   The Valley Waste budget remains unapproved.

Sincerely,

The Municipality of the County of Annapolis
