The proclamation is the recommendation of the Florida Bar Association, which suggests annual adoption of a proclamation aimed at providing for the free and civil exchange of ideas during public meetings without “anger”, “ridicule” or rudeness.

Waste Pro transition

Waste Pro takes over the county contract for solid waste removal June 1. Waste Pro was awarded the BOCC’s garbage bid last month, replacing current contractor Waste Management.

A representative of Waste Pro said Tuesday that 99 percent of customers had received new containers – which while shorter are wider and the same overall size as those from Waste Management – and Waste Management would have all its containers removed by week’s end.

Some 90 percent of customers will continue to have their garbage picked up on the same day. Those with changes in service days were notified by a decal on the new cans.

Waste Management is also processing refunds for any customers who have already paid for June and beyond.
