FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) — Fall River Mayor Sam Sutter is appointing a seven-person task force to evaluate the city’s best choices for dealing with trash collection and sanitation.
The Solid Waste Task Force, announced Monday morning at Government Center, will be led by city councilman Mike Miozza and former Congressional candidate Dan Patello.
Mayor Sutter said the group won’t necessarily eliminate “pay as you throw,” but will be tasked with finding the best system for the city moving forward. They have a lot to look at, the mayor said — every kind of trash program or arrangement they can find, including a privatized system. “I’m asking them to look at this as throughly, analytically, intensively as they can — so that they’re making recommendations to me that I am in all likelihood going to follow.”
The group is expected to have a recommendation in five to six months.
