Supervisor Hill Requests Grand Jury Investigation of SBWMA
 Process for Selecting New Collection Services and Facility Operations Contractors Flawed 
Redwood City, California – San Mateo County Supervisor Jerry Hill is calling for a Civil Grand Juryinvestigation into the SBWMA’s contractor selection process for collection services and the operation of the proposed new Shoreway Environmental Center. Hill sent a letter to the Grand Jury Foreperson on November 7,2008.“This inquiry is part of my ongoing due diligence to determine whether the SBWMA’s contractor selection process for Collection Services and Facility Operations was conducted in a fair, transparent, and unbiasedmanner,” said Hill. “The integrity of the process is essential to upholding the public’s trust and ensuring thatthese services are provided in the most cost-effective manner possible”.In July, SBWMA recommended two firms, Hudson Baylor Corporation and South Bay Recycling, beshortlisted for further consideration as the Authority’s facility operations provider. In August, SBWMArecommended NorCal Waste Systems of San Mateo over three other firms, including incumbent provider Allied Waste, as its collection service provider for a ten year term beginning January 1, 2011. Therecommendation has not been approved by all of the Authority’s members. Allegations of bias on the part of SBWMA Executive Director Kevin McCarthy have surrounded the process ever since.Among the evidence Hill provided the Grand Jury:
!
 
A letter from McCarthy to elected officials containing disparaging newspaper articles about AlliedWaste’s operations and emails from bidders lauding the transparency and integrity of the bidding process; the e-mails were later found to have been solicited by McCarthy.
!
 
An e-mail from BEST Corp. General Manager Louie Pellegrini to Supervisor Hill recounting anincident where McCarthy allegedly threatened BEST with the loss of a business partnership withHudson Baylor, one of the shortlisted Facility Operations contractors.McCarthy was removed from the Facility Operations Contractor Selection Committee shortly after thesedetails emerged.---More---
