Proposal is a lot of garbage

So once again, the local brain trust, our Augusta commissioners, are debating the merits of going to once-a-week trash pickup. I’m 52 years old, and grew up in Augusta. I moved away in the mid-1980s, but moved back. Right up until the time I left, the city of Augusta was picking up the trash every day. Now it’s down to twice a week, and they’re considering once a week?

Why don’t they just go ahead and strategically place dumpsters in all of the city neighborhoods, and instruct the citizens to dispose of their own garbage? No wait, that won’t work – they’d still find a way to charge us for trash pickup.

So, I assume that my property taxes – which increase every year, and include a fee for trash pickup – will go down if the service is cut back. Anybody believe that one?
