Town Talk – Letters to the Editor - Trash and Snow

The following are recent letters published in Town Talk in the St. Louis Suburban Journal.

>>  Trashing the Service

Attention all residents of the city of St. Louis. Since they implemented that every home homeowner has to pay an $11 a month fee for trash pickup, your trash is still only being picked up once a week. Not twice a week like it should be.

I called the city refuse department three times now and it falls on deaf ears. Contact your alderman or contact Mayor Slay’s office. Tell them how you feel about this scam going on in the refuse department.

After all, you’re paying for a service and aren’t getting the trash pickup that they promised.

>>  Plow Privilege

Here’s an observation: in south St. Louis County, the people who had County trash pickup through St. Louis County, got their streets plowed and cleaned better than people who opted out of the program.

My subdivision didn’t get there streets plowed until Saturday, after all the storm and everything else. Just an observation!

    What is wrong with you non conformists. Don't you understand, if you do what Charlie and Gary Ealrs want, they will treat you with some honor. If you don't, well, gee, no snow removal.
    Get on the bus, and do what you are expected to do.

    The next thing on the Fed’s agenda seems to be telling us what kind of light bulbs we can use in our homes. Has what just happened in Egypt and why it happened escaped them? Government at all levels in the U.S. is becoming more intrusive in our daily lives and more oppressive. They can tell us how to live our lives but they don’t seem to have any time or resources to devote to stopping illegal immigration, balancing the budgets, saving social security, or even ending the childish partisan bickering but, they’ve got light bulbs under control.
