What happens to the trash if we don’t recycle it?

Staff reports

To the Editor,

I can’t believe we will eliminate recycling in this town. After spending between $100,000 & $200,000 dollars on attorney fees, we can’t afford recycling? What an example to our youth. Who pays for the damage done to our roads by the trash haulers? Who pays for our gas, time and wear on our vehicles to drive to the landfill? Who, I wonder, will pick up the trash that will be thrown on the side of our roads? Is this good for senior citizens?

Also, the 2009 Comprehensive Plan (with an embossed seal) that sits on the desk of the town clerk must be a figment of my imagination, at least according to Angela Einwahter. It does not surprise me this new plan deals with “concerns about industrial wind development.” I’m sure this is not a surprise to anyone.

But what does surprise me is the fact a member of our board can tell me the past election “does not matter because they will still have a majority on the new board.”

This all speaks volumes about the arrogance of some and the way things have been misrepresented to the public.
