You've probably heard by now about the City of Prichard and their new attempt at starting their own garbage pick up service.
They bought over a half a million dollars worth of garbage cans with a misspelling on the logo: instead of saying "Mobile County" the cans say "Mobile Country." Yes, a silly mistake.
Now a Prichard City Councilman Lorenzo Martin is saying the money spent buying the cans was done without city council approval, which he says is illegal.
You can see what he has to say in the story below, reported by the outstanding NBC 15 reporter Rachel Wilkerson.
I cannot understand why Prichard would even want to start a new city service when they seem to have trouble delivering on all the other city services. In fact, why not just un-incorporate or dis-incorporate and become a part of the county?
