  • George said,

    I am against privatizing trash collection.

  • Dilza said,

    Very concerned about locals; Naugatuck citizens losing their jobs – Naugatuck already has a high rate of unemployment can we afford to add more?

  • Hearing set on privatizing collections | Citizen's News said,

    [...] The hearing is scheduled for 6 p.m. in Town Hall. It will begin with a presentation followed by the opportunity for public comment, Mayor Robert Mezzo said on his blog. [...]

  • Dave said,

    Concerned about the possible loss of jobs by our hard working locals to bring in a private company. In this time and age, why eliminate these positions. Doesnt make sense…

  • Bob said,

    There is no intention to layoff-off any existing employees through the privatization proposal. Any reduction in force and corresponding cost-savings would be accomplished through attrition.

    The presentation to be explained at tonight’s (4/30/2014) public hearing has been attached to the post.
