It’s laughable when Santa Monica Public Works Director Martin Pastucha expresses concern about taxpayer dollars being wasted on the trash bin the city is building near the Chez Jay restaurant (“Landmark sagas over Chez Jay, ‘Chain Reaction’ end,” Nov. 13).

Any problems with this project have been created entirely by the city. When you consider all the city staff time in actual dollars being wasted on this project, this will end up as the most expensive trash bin in the world. But then again, the City Council, city management and city staff could care less about wasting taxpayer money because it’s not their money, but ours.
