Ooh, That Smell

Hollywood commish profits on biowaste

With N-Viro demonized and Schwing Bioset wrapped in Native American romance, the commission voted 3-2 in favor of Schwing Bioset, with Bober and Russo comprising the minority. Negotiations are under way with Bioset for the contract.

It's still possible the decision could be overturned. Furr said last week during a commission meeting that he still believes the vote was rushed and would like to revisit it. If either Oliveri or Anderson agrees with him, the city would have to have another vote.

But a reversal, while needed, won't address the central issue, namely that Hollywood is dirty. Of course, we already knew that (please see: Koslow, Alan). But this deal was the political equivalent of a bank robbery in broad daylight on a busy street.

Needless to say, the situation calls for a criminal investigation. Preferably by a statewide prosecutor or the feds -- anything but State Attorney Michael Satz's do-nothing public corruption unit. They only have to follow the smell.
