On trash day, this classic car (which needs a new paint job) was hit by a tall vehicle. It was on a street with very little traffic, near a tight corner where trucks have a hard time turning without hitting parked cars.
Could we be happier with another hauler? Could we get a better a deal and reduce the high cost of living in Encinitas with a competitor? We won't know if the city never puts the trash franchise out for competitive proposals.
The only time perpetuity applies in Encinitas is when it comes to trash hauling contracts.
