PELHAM, N.Y. In its meeting on Tuesday night, the Pelham Board of Trustees delayed a vote on renewing its sanitation contract with AAA Carting.
Trustee Paul McGoldrick spearheaded the tabling of the vote, to see if the board could reduce the price of the contract because of the forthcoming 2 percent tax cap.
A spokesperson from AAA Carting was at the meeting and said that he was fine with looking at other contract options. Village Administrator Robert Yamuder and the spokesperson said they would talk during the week about the contract.
The contract was scheduled to cost $580,649.39 and lasted a year. AAA Carting also takes care of Pelham's recycling and refuse pickup.
In order to reduce the cost, Trustee Susan Marciona suggested that the village should look into curbside garbage pickup instead of the currently used and more expensive backyard pickup.
