Mrs. Gayle Rottmann, wife of Wayne Rottmann, is still seething over her husband's arrest by sheriff's deputies earlier this month, saving that it was unfair to put him behind bars before the couple had their day in court. Raft- mann had continued servicing his apart- ment complex and tailer park customers, contending that these were commercial stops, not residential pickups. Mrs. Rottmann argues that the parish franchise awarded to J&V Sanitation only covers residential households. "We had stopped collecting from our longtime residential customers. Now they want to strip us of everything. My husband and his family have been in this business for over a quarter century. We are a Pon- chatoula business being put out of busi- ness. My husband has bean jailed. We have three children and now they have taken our means of support away, and our breadwinner." "I have asked the district attorney for an investigation of the parish govern- ment and of J & V Sanitation (which received an exclusive trash hauling franchise awarded by the police jury) because ! believe a conspiracy has to exist to have resulted in my husbands arrest."
