Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner has decided now is not the time to ask voters to raise their taxes. He's walking back plans to place lifting of the so-called revenue cap on the November ballot. Many see it as a reality check by the Turner administration.
The mayor is also under fire from a cutting edge waste vendor whose accused turner of bid rigging.
So here's the issue, the head of waste disposal company Eco-Hub says his firm would have saved taxpayers up to 40 million dollars a year, but the mayor changed the requirements of the contract making it impossible for his company to compete for a long-term deal.
