    Rent 3 for one year with a total of $6084 per year? Maintenance and repair cost per year? How much money is actually going to be saved? Why would you NOT have the recycling option for each one? Being compactors, are there going to be cameras on them to make sure recyclables or hazardous items will not be put inside? When the year is up, are they still going to be charging the $4ooo.oo each? Is there a rent to own clause? I am sure there are plenty of other questions to be asked. So, there was no citizen input, right? The deal is done for the 3 compactors, for the next 12 months. Make the deal, then announce it to the locals... Oh, BTW, we are doing this with you tax dollars.. Wow. You're starting to sound like Sarasota, who pays absolutely no heed to the citizens' opinions.
