~ Because of increased complaints about trash service and customer service, city staff has met with Athens, which "will be taking corrective measures, and will be communicating with their operations manager, route supervisor, customer service representatives, and trash truck drivers about the need to provide better service more consistently." Chi adds: "In addition, we have instituted a new monitoring and tracking system with Athens to identify and log missed trash service days. If a customer has repeated instances of missed trash pickups (3 or more within each 90-day period), the city will be sent a report so that we can further investigate the issues and resolve the matter."
