Candidates take stand on garbage fee
We, as City Council candidates, are writing to clarify our position on the garbage collection fee recently passed by the City Council. We are against charging a separate fee for basic services and look forward to working with other council members to find a responsible way to repeal this “tax.”
A responsible analysis of the budget must occur to find ways of eliminating this fee without damaging other programs and costing the citizens more money.
We appreciate the feedback from the many citizens we have talked to about this issue and look forward to repealing this fee at the earliest possible time and in a responsible manner.
