Dear Mrs. King,
I read your comments concerning “mandated” curbside delivery in Crisp County. I feel that both you and Steve Sanders should not be promoting something in a county where neither of you live.
I have lived in Crisp County for about 49 of my 56 years. I also have lived in Dooly County. The trash dumpsters need to be better monitored in Crisp County, not removed. All the dumpsters are not such bad sights as you stated.
I live over 1,200 feet from the highway, and I do not intend to push or drag a polycart that distance. In a county that had over 1700 appeals over property tax increases, I feel that most people cannot afford to pay the extra cost of a polycart at this time.
Our county commissioners have many more things that are more worthy of their time in the economic condition that our county is in. When the dumpsters are removed, we will have to move furniture and appliances to get down the dirt part of Rockhouse Rd. as we used to do.
If our county commissioners vote to mandate polycarts at this time, I think people should consider replacing the commissioners at election time.
