Does anyone besides me feel that the demand we pay a minimum of $19.90 to the city of Oak Harbor to pick up our garbage is unjust, un-American and just plain wrong?
I take a lot of stuff to recycle and don’t generate even one full can a month.
At the facility on Old Oak Harbor Road, the most I ever paid was $14.50. Usually it’s $11 and that’s for several months. I have a metal can to keep out rats, and, yes, it gets icky.
I’m careful and the can doesn’t smell bad after.
Even $14.50 every few months is a lot different than $19.90 per month.
Our elected officials are supposed to serve us, not rob us.
If you feel similarly, please write to the powers that be. Thank you.
