A civic report released this week says the city saved $300,000 in operating savings for sewage treatment and $500,000 in consulting fees during the second year of the city's 30-year contract with Veolia. Veolia was paid $3.5 million for reimbursement of direct costs, including salaries.

More pickups, more cost

THE city can empty large garbage bins on city property twice a week during the summer, but it will be costly.

A cit report says if the city picks up garbage twice a week instead of once from 622 of the 1,500 bins along street right of ways, it would cost an extra $170,000. Pickups at 2,750 bins on other city properties would cost an additional $250,000.
