The change in the trash-bin law is just another way to trash our city.
Mayor Ashley Swearengin is working continuously to improve our city neighborhoods and then Council President Oliver Baines introduced the new bill to modify the trash-bin law. The city council may be indifferent to how these bins are stored but, I can assure you, the majority of our city residents are not. We take pride in our neighborhoods, and Gregory Barfield’s comment about “busybody neighbors” is disrespectful and arrogant.
We cannot control what the drought has done to our city but, we certainly can keep the trash bins out of our front yards.
I urge you, do not adopt this change.
