Garbage collection failures continue

Dear Editor:

One of the basic services controlled by the City is garbage collection.  For the past several months, garbage collection has been sporadic at best.  Sometimes the garbage is collected and at other times, the cans may sit on the streets for an entire week.

I called the Mayor’s office and was assured that a new supervisor was on the way.  Still no change.  Many of us have resorted to taking our garbage to pitch ins.

All of us pay a garbage fee with our utility bills, and we expect better service than we are receiving.  If the present company cannot meet its obligation, fire it and bring in a company that can.

Sincerely yours,

Walter J. Patterson
