re: Contractor Pulls out of Tire Shredder Agreement with BR; Cites Bureaucratic Dysfunction
I was pretty close to this one. Matt had even agreed to store the shredded material in his district, the shredder needed to be close to where all the tires are being illegally dumped. And Matt and DEQ had a nice map showing that almost all were in the 70805. Passing up a FREE $600K grant because the racist Metro Council and equally racist Mayor were afraid that Matt would get “credit” for this, and egged on by her trusted single digit IQ advisors like Gravy, this opportunity has been pissed away. This is a great case study for the problems Baton Rouge faces, and I lack confidence that it can be righted. It’s why I want the heck out.

If property values weren’t so low in NBR, perhaps they’d look somewhere else.

So confused why he is concerned whether the shredded tire waste is sold in NBR or SBR? The tax money all still goes to EBR, or am I missing something? I am sure no one in town is buying shredded tires but I could be wrong

Seems like you could track who is dumping that large of an amount of tires.


Here is what is going on with that. The state legislated that every time someone buys a tire they pay a "tire disposal fee" (I think it is $2.00 passenger car, $5.00 light truck, $10.00 off road a tire) and that the tire shop collect that money and pay it to the state. Well you know damn well the tire shop doesn't want to give that money to the state. So they find some enterprising young gentleman with a pickup truck who says: "I will take those tires off your hand and you only have to pay me $1.00 a tire. I promise to recycle them like the state mandates." Tire shop guy knows good damn and well what is going to happen but his hands are clean so he pays the guy, keeps the rest and the tires get dumped illegally.

It seems that's where all the tires are though. This is all up and down the streets on street view. It didn't take me 5 seconds to find this garbage. How about clean up your neighborhood?

For anyone who has ever dealt with the City Parish or the permitting division this should come as no surprise.

Dysfunction is putting it mildly.
