The following is an open letter to Comox Mayor Russ Arnott and town council:
I totally don’t understand your logic to reduce garbage pickup from every week to every two weeks. You cite a saving of $23 to every household. Were the residents complaining about the cost of garbage pickup? For crying out loud, forget about reducing taxes by $23 and leave it alone. Is this a smoke and mirrors effort to reduce taxes and then increase them somewhere else?
The way you went about getting this motion through, leaves much to be desired. If you are so desperate please bill me the $23 in order to continue garbage pickup every week. If you continue with this motion you should prepare yourselves for the consequences. I am not going to keep stinking garbage in my garage for two weeks so you better figure this out.
