If I was this business owner, think I’d be considering a blanket baseball bat party at these clowns homes…$800,000 in lost business because of some racist assholes!
A company where several employees displayed gunsand another brought a Ku Klux Klan sticker to a worksite will effectively lose two contracts worth $800,000 with the City of Milwaukee under a deal approved Wednesday by the Milwaukee Common Council.
Under the resolution, which passed unanimously, the city will terminate one American Sewer Services contract and reject another bid on an un-awarded contract where the company was the lowest bidder. The agreement also prohibits American Sewer Services from rebidding on either of the contracts, and says the company won’t contest any part of the deal.
The Milwaukee Common Council may also push for harsher penalties for American Sewer Services. Those punishments could include compelling its owner, Dennis Biondich, to testify before aldermen.
Debate over the issue grew heated during a previous Public Works Committee meeting at City Hall — especially after two south side aldermen voiced concern that city officials were punishing the company too severely for the actions of a few employees — but the resolution passed without discussion Wednesday.
Alds. Mark Borkowski and Bob Donovan previously insisted Biondich felt terribly that his employees had brought weapons and a cooler with a KKK sticker to worksites.
Donovan added that Biondich had apologized and fired the worker who brought the KKK sticker as well as another who displayed his weapon. He also said American Sewer Services had an otherwise stellar record from its 30 years.
