This goes out to all of the council members and Monument Waste. It is not a good idea to streamline recycling, it is the stupidest thing ever. You will be putting people out of jobs, but of course none of you have to worry about a thing, especially you council members since you took it upon yourselves to give yourselves over a $20,000 a year raise when you don’t even spend 40 hours a week in those offices.
I don’t want an ugly 95-gallon drum on my property. I will not pay you people or anyone else to put people out of work. If these people lose their jobs, I will not support this streamline recycling. I am tired of you people dictating to us in this community. You people are always crying about keeping our money local. Well, I have had it with that saying. As a local, I am being gouged and ripped off. I do my shopping online. The wages in this town don’t meet with the cost of living; people can’t afford to move here to go to work because they don’t want to work two or three jobs just to survive, besides there is nothing but overnight rentals in this town.
The locals can’t find places to rent because they can’t afford $1,200 or $1,500 rent. That is why there are “help wanted” signs year round. You do not take care of this community, it is all about the tourists. I’ve been taking my money elsewhere just so I can get more for my money. It is too expensive here. All of you people have ruined this community. You do not do anything for this community as far as living, shopping, doctoring and anything else. All you are out to do is rip off the community any way you can.
