This is the SMARTest thing that the town of Shirley has ever done. Now people will recycle and save tax dollars. Hopefully we can save enough money to have more firemen, and police. We can afford the Memorial Day parade, help our senior citizens and the schools. Thank you to the Shirley Board of health.

So a specific override was approved and the money does not go to what it was approved for. Excellent concept and nice way to build trust in local government. Although the "SMART" program is a good one and I agree with it, the means to get there continues the trend of mismanagement in Shirley.

As with all overrides, the money is only spent for the intended purpose the first year. In subsequent years the money is part of the General Fund and available to be spent on any purpose town meeting approves.
Establishing an Enterprise Fund and the pay as you throw program in Ayer has virtually eliminated the need to use hundreds of thousands of dollars from the tax levy to offset solid waste deficits. Shirley should realize an immediate benefit from both in next year's budgeting cycle.

Finally, there will be equity between single family households and those who place 15 bags per week on the street for pick-up who and do not pay more for it. I am sick of paying for others. Now everyone pays for waht they discard.
