Iberia Garbage Contract

The Iberia Parish Council voted 9-3 to pass a resolution altering its contract with garbage collection company IESI so the parish saves more than $115,000 over four years.  As part of the resolution, the council also changed the waste transfer station company from a locally owned facility run by parish resident Gordon Doyle to a facility that IESI owns in Lafayette Parish.  Doyle walked out of Wednesday's meeting after the vote. He told the council he would have to lay off workers if the change in contract takes place.  Duncan said should any layoffs take place, IESI staff members have said they would hire the out-of-work employees as the workload will increase.
