The city council is upset with the company because of a lack of manpower and the quality of service received.
“The council is sick of our men not being in the city of Williamson,” said McCormick. “Financially there’s an issue which means contractually there is an issue.”
McCormick and the city council will request Veolia to provide an account of where Veolia’s employees have been working.
“I feel like there’s no use in continuing our relationship with Veolia the way it’s going. We’ve got to do something,” said Smith.
Currently, Veolia have eight employees working in Williamson. According to the city, Veolia is contractually obligated to have twenty employees in all with ten employees working in the water department and ten in the street department.
The company is hiring positions on a temporary basis through job services to boost manpower.
