Last Thursday and Friday our street was not cleaned due to the holiday. Guess what — we survived! In this time of tight budgets, is it really necessary to have our streets cleaned every week? Aren’t there many other services the city provides that could similarly be reduced without any significant effects on our daily lives?
Although it is not a city matter, I have been saying for years that we could get by without Saturday mail service. It finally looks like that will happen. I, for one, hope that the new City Council can look at these things and make some sweeping changes.
