What choices?

December 17, 2011


To the editor:

About trash service. With the economy the way it is, instead of trying to eliminate people’s jobs, you should be trying to keep them. The new system you talk about eliminates jobs.

Also, what happened to freedom of choice? Making people pay to recycle and have another trash card to take care of leaves them no choice.

You talk about drawing retirees. It’s getting more expensive to own and live here every year.

And what about those junk RVs that sit along Mass. Street by the park? Why is that being allowed?

All I know is our freedom of choice is deteriorating fast.

I have an issue with my tax dollars being drained from jobs for workers who live in my community, shop in my community and support services in my community for a new truck. automated or not. City workers might also contribute a valuable community presence adding security to our little burg.

a) Tough job - but a good one. Hot in summer, cold in winter but almost always finish route(s) a couple of hours early and get paid for full day. It's time to get much more efficient. b) Too lazy to sort trash? Might I remind you the potential "competitor" recycles - from one truck! c) Someone has to pay for all the "social" programs and new buildings..... d) Because they are legal. As long as they are moved every 24-48 hours (I forget the exact time limit on the books) they (RVs) can park there and most other places on city streets. Oh, by the way that also applies to automobiles. Do you want the police to drive around town looking for "illegally" parked automobiles also?
