He noted that equipment has become a major problem in the solid waste collection business nation-wide. For example, he pointed out that last week the company had to mill a power take-off for the truck that is now operating. "The availabili~ of parts is becoming more and more difficult and the cost of truck units both new and used is very high" he reported. expected soon for a medex, who is now with the staff.

Legal Suit Adams also indicated that possible legal action also looms over action by city officials last month in hiring Basin Disposal of Pasco to come to Othello and haul garbage. City Attorney Fred Shelton contacted the Pasco firm and had them spend a day and a half in Othello cleaning up garbage when Nash couldn't perform due to break-downs. Shelton explained that ex- pense of the move will amount to $50 per hour. He indicated that he feels that under the present contract, Nash must pay for the work since they could not perform. Adams, however, has a different view. He points out that the present contract provides for the city to hire persons to operate the Nash equipment in such an emer- gency. "The city had no right to call in someone else," Adams stated Wednesday. "There is no way we are going to pay and will got to court. The city has no recourse on the hiring of the other firm while we were under contract." Many Complaints Shelton reported Wednes- day he was told the City Hall had 45 complaints that morn- ing from residents on garbage pick up.
