Cumberland resident will keep leaving garbage out every week

Dear editor,

So as of June 19 the Village of Cumberland is telling us that we need to take the garage cans out every other week.

Dear editor,

So as of June 19 the Village of Cumberland is telling us that we need to take the garage cans out every other week.

Who was the one that thought this was a smart thing?

I’m now going to keep my garage and the smells that come along with this and put it out every other week (the bears are going to like this). I think not.

So if you are like me, I will be putting my garage out every week like they do everywhere else and I hope that everyone else does the same thing, because this is why I pay my taxes I thought because it not because of the road upgrades.

If they do want me to put it out every other week, I guess my garage can should be bigger and give everyone a break on their water bill because everyone will wash their garage so it does not smell.

Please, could someone from the Village council write in and tell everyone in the Valley what they were thinking?

T. Irving,

Cumberland
