Council Committee Working
Out Plan to Meet Situation
Caused ly Failure of
Harry V. llayward is unable to
. continue f i is garbage contract with
the city. Failure on his part to carry
out the provision of the contract
means the forfeiting of a $10,000
bond which he furnished to the city.
The contract was in fact let to
Henry Pollack, financed by Mr. Hay
ward, who established a liOR-fecding
yard near Cedar Creek, 'Neb. Mr.
I lay ward furnished the bond which
was required by the city when Pol
lock obtained his contract. Last
fall Mr. 1'ollock left Omaha rather
sudden t It, whereupon Mr. Jlayward
undertook to continue the garbage
contract with the city.
Decides to Forfeit Bond.
Within the last week Mr. nay
ward indicated to the city council
that he would endeavor to continue
his contract until the end of this
year .if the cily would establish a
loading dock at Fourth and Leaven
worth streets and would obtain for
him a reduction of carload freight
rates charged for hauling bis gar
biiee from Omaha to Cedar Creek.
Yesterday afternoon Comniission-
er Zimman announced that Mr. Hay
ward'has decided to forfeit his bond
of $10,000 and get out from under
the financial burden which he says
he is carrying.
The contract which was entered
into between the city and Pollock
' stipulated that the city would pay
$45,000 a year for a period of five
years, Pollock to collect and dis
pose of all garbage according to
rules and regulations prescribed by
the health department.
Hit by Declining Prices.
A declining hog market was one
of the factors which entered into
the situation and another factor was
the rate of $50 to $80 a carload
i . T ! j t i
cnargea oy me rauroau ior namms
a carload of garbage from Omaha
'to Cedar Creek, where Mr. Hay
ward now has nearly 2,000 hogs.
Mr. Hayward told the city council
that he could not collect and dis
pose of the garbage during June,
Jtilv and August for less than
$10,000 a month. He told Commis
sioner Zimman that he paid out
$82,000 last year to meet the pro
visions of his garbage contract and
received $45,000 from the city.
City Commissioners Dunn and
Zimman and City Attorney TeFocl
are serving as a special committee
for, the city council to work out a
plan to meet the garbage situation
until such time as the city will be
able to build a reduction plant or
install an incinerator system.
