If you have something to add to Mayor Jerry Sanders’ recycling proposal, you’ll have the opportunity tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Ridgehaven Auditorium located at 9601 Ridgehaven Court. It’s the second chance to give input on the proposal.

I also heard back this morning from Alan Pentico, the spokesman for the San Diego County Apartment Association. He shared several of the same concerns as Craig Benedetto, the office building association spokesman quoted in my story.

Pentico wrote in an e-mail:

It’s likely that by the time this makes it through committee to the full council and they have a chance to see the financial information, it will already be late October or even November. This means that owners will have about 1.5 months to put programs in place and renegotiate contracts if need be. That’s tight.

Additionally, we have concerns with the enforcement. If a property doesn’t have some sort of program and they have not been issued a waiver, then yes, let’s address the problem. That being said, property owners shouldn’t be fined for the actions (or lack of action in this case) of their tenants. That’s not fair.
