"I read the mayor's article and I think he said, 'Yes.' So I'll stop selling."
St. Petersburg City Councilman Karl Nurse at today's council meeting, referring to an op-ed in the St. Petersburg Times written by Mayor Rick Baker that, at least in part, gives the go-ahead to City Council to implement some type of curbside recycling:
If the City Council elected to go forward with a program that has no cost to St. Petersburg, I would not block it.
Ever since a series of news reports on Baker's dismissal of Pinellas County's countywide curbside recycling proposal, the city has been inundated with calls and e-mails from angry residents. So, today, City Council brought up an item to discuss curbside recycling further something they haven't done since 2005.
A workshop is scheduled for October.
